“URBAN MORPHOLOGY AND BUILDING TYPOLOGY: At the Core of the New Urbanism”

The Congress for the New Urbanism invites academic paper submissions for final presentation at CNU 20 in West Palm Beach. The papers will be refereed by a distinguished group of professionals and scholars around the world – all papers will be read and commented by, at least, two reviewers. This year’s submissions must focus on the relationship between urban form and the built world. The intention is to deliver a summary of academic investigations concentrating on the roots of traditional or contemporary built forms, their physical manifestations, historical processes, and social behavior.

Urban morphology and building typology are indeed at the core of the New Urbanism methodological discipline. The goals for this year’s New Urban Research are to: identify original sources of research; discuss the individual parts that make up the urban environment; explain with utmost simplicity the complexities of the built world; and provide a venue for scholars interested in ordinary architecture and urbanism, rather than on extraordinary events.

Academic topics may include: comparative urban tissues, housing typologies, architectural syntax and traditional composition, historic development of road networks, building type evolution or devolution, urban modifications and repair, informal urbanism, generative codes, regional landscapes and urban ecologies, culture and built traditions, urban patterns, etc.

Final selection will be based on the paper’s depth of content, demonstration of methodological rigor, contribution and advancement to the topic of the year, and overall significance to the practice of New Urbanism. Selected authors are expected to present their papers at CNU 20 in West Palm Beach, Florida, May 8-12, 2012. For more information see Submission Guidelines at http://www.cnu20.org/callforresearch/guidelines.

The CNU 20 Call for New Urban Research is now open. Submission must be received no later than Friday, December 2nd, 2011.
