We cordially invite your attention to the attached call “The material transition in architecture and construction. Social, economic, spatial and cultural implications and appropriation processes”. We welcome as many proposals as possible by 29 January 2024.
This TATuP Special topic is intended to contribute to interdisciplinary, problem- oriented research on the shift toward bio- and earth-based building materials considering the related socio-technical, economic, political, ecological, and regulatory adaptation and adoption processes. It aims to examine the research and use of sustainable building materials from an integrative perspective, emphasizing the associated visions of the future, implementation opportunities and obstacles, conditions of use and acceptability, as well as the requirements of integration into the planning phases in architecture and construction. Pointed international perspectives referring to the local built heritage are also welcome.
TATuP – Journal for Technology Assessment in Theory and Practice is the international and peer reviewed open access journal for the interdisciplinary field of technology assessment and neighboring fields of research.
