Cover of Vol 14, No 27 (2021)

Beniamino Polimeni, Lecturer in Architecture at the Leicester School of Architecture at De Montfort University and Michael A. Toler, Archnet Content Manager in AKDC@MIT, will be guest editors of DISEGNARECON ISSUE Vol 15, No 28 (2022) on the topic of “Cities and Migration: Visual approaches to the challenges of increasingly diverse cities.”

According to the Call for Papers, the issue:

will highlight new architectural and landscape/urban planning responses on migration, including strategies for reinforcing social inclusion and urban diversity. Priority will be given to papers based on an argument that analyses visual and material culture; look at issues of migration and urban growth through the lens of the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Goals; or that use data visualisations, GIS mapping, and multimedia archives to explore some aspect of questions relating to migration and urbanisation.

Published by the University of L’Aquila, Italy, DISEGNARECON is an interdisciplinary, international, open access, academic journal focused on research and case studies in the fields of architecture, cultural heritage, representation and communication. The deadline for abstract submission is March 27, 2022. For more information about this issue, possible topics, and a full production schedule, see:
