Call for Papers – Architecture and its Stories

The zero degree of architectural writing – Theorizing, drawing and debating the ‘third term’ is a two-day symposium to be held on 2 and 3 November 2022 at the Faculty of Architecture La Cambre Horta of the Université Libre de Bruxelles. It aims to explore the recent history of the idea of ‘zero degree of architectural writing’ borrowed from Roland Barthes’ Writing Degree Zero (1953), and its resonance in the present, from three perspectives: 1) its contributions to architectural theory and criticism by the adaptations and reasonings that have resulted from these acts of translation ; 2) the repercussions the concept has had for the work of architects in the last half century and the resulting projects ; 3) the spaces where the architectural ‘zero degree’ became an object of transculturation.

Abstracts in PDF format (500 words) may be submitted to zerodegree.symposium@gmail.com. A short presentation of the author(s) should be added (150 words maximum). The selected contributions will be announced on 15 April 2022. Final versions of the selected papers (4000 words) are expected by 1 October 2022. Please note that the symposium will be held in English
