THE PLAN JOURNAL (TPJ) SPRING 2022 OPEN ISSUE

More Theoretical Insights from THE PLAN Journal’s Latest Issue
By Editorial Staff -

We offer additional insights on relevant and current themes in our Theory section of TPJ.

In the conference report “‘Carlo Roma 2020’: Architecture, City and Politics in Carlo Aymonino’s Legacy,” the author Diana Carta describes the June 2021 symposium “Carlo Aymonino. Progetto, città e politica” held at the School of Architecture, Valle Giulia at the Sapienza University of Rome. Carta explains that the symposium was part of several events that “had the objective to start a critical conversation on Carlo Aymonino’s legacy for the contemporary architectural scene.”

Finally, to learn more about Carlo Aymonino’s time and place in architectural history, we suggest you read the text, Ernesto Nathan Rogers (2021) by our Editor-in-Chief, Maurizio Sabini.

Theory

In, “‘Carlo Roma 2020’: Architecture, City and Politics in Carlo Aymonino’s Legacy,” the author Diana Carta wrote:

“The city, according to Carlo Aymonino, is certainly a complex phenomenon and it is inseparable from politics: polis as policy. It was a palimpsest which, throughout history, declared the inseparability between the architectural project and the city.”

Carta concludes:

“The complex figure of Carlo Aymonino opened toward numerous considerations and the final section of the symposium regarded a further series of analyses and reflections, which served as the conclusion of the conference and started to outline further research material around the Italian master.”

Why support + read TPJ?

The Plan Journal is intended to disseminate and promote innovative, thought-provoking, and relevant research, studies, and criticism related to architecture and urbanism. The journal grew out of an awareness that academia is all too often engaged in research that’s disconnected from the real-world challenges that face different professions, and that research is only possible for a small number of professional organizations, and, even then, with limited platforms for its dissemination. The overarching aim of TPJ is therefore to enrich the dialogue between researchers and professionals so as to foster both pertinent new knowledge and intellectually driven modes of practice.

 

How does it work + why does it matter?

Prospective contributors are encouraged to submit proposals or complete manuscripts to the Editor-in-Chief. Subject to positive feedback, proposals can then be developed into complete manuscripts and submitted for review, using the dedicated portal on the TPJ website. 

After preliminary approval, manuscripts will be forwarded to suitably qualified people for commenting. TPJ is committed to following a rigorous double-blind peer review process using at least two reviewers. The Editor-in-Chief may also occasionally invite recognized academics, critics, or professionals (including members of the editorial board) to contribute to the journal without going through the peer review process, if warranted by the author’s reputation.
