ISSN 2043068X , ONLINE ISSN 20430698

Design Ecologies describes a burgeoning field that promotes ecological transitions within local and global contexts. This peer-reviewed journal builds communities and discusses themes that cross over, into and out of architecture, environment, interaction, urbanism, performing arts and communication.

Design Ecologies foregrounds the inextricable connection between human communication and ecological accountability in architectural design. This burgeoning field has the potential to become a far-reaching discipline, bonding a community that crosses over into and out of architecture, environment, interaction, urbanism, and performing arts and communication.

Through original design exploration ranging in scale, the double-blind peer-reviewed journal will proffer a critical vision towards the built environment, and promote ecological transitions within local and global contexts. It will challenge the everyday emerging practices of architectural design by offering a transdisciplinary framework for design production.

We invite submissions of articles from any discipline to speculate on the formation of your projects/buildings/performances as a critical practice that activates our understanding of intuition, inventory and discovery in architecture. The four areas of interest include:

1. Ecological design visions
2. Notational design
3. Instructional design visions
4. Aesthetical design visions

We also welcome case studies and project profiles of 1–5 pages in length.

Submissions
All articles submitted should be original work and must not be under consideration by other publications.

Submissions are welcome from both scholars and practitioners. Contributions may be between 3,000 and 7,000 words and should be accessible to the non-specialist reader. Papers must be submitted in English.

Please send all submissions to: shaun@eniatype.com

Design Ecologies was set up as a platform for state-of-the-art experiments that link architecture, technology and philosophy. Dividing its remit between events - most recently exhibitions and seminars at the Architectural Association and the Royal College of Art - and publications, Design Ecologies officially launched with its inaugural journal issue in January 2011. A second issue, 'The Unprimed Canvas' - named after an offhand remark by Francis Bacon, to the effect that he considered the process of painting to start with priming the canvas, not assuming it had already been primed - followed later that year, and saw Timothy Morton contribute an editorial. The third issue, the Ill-Defined Niche, had an editorial written by the inimitable Nick Land. The fourth issue, 'A Sentient Relic, described a double-edged sword theory: one edge exposing the dominant ‘theory chic' of contemporary architecture and the other cutting opening the for a more dangerous conception of design - a guide and tool for plotting a cryptic cartography with strategic precision. For the first issue of the third volume, 'Chthonic Deluge', we were honoured to have the ideation article written by the very best hard science-fiction writer, Peter Watts, who is an author, felon and former marine biologist whose background informs science fiction on the hard end of the scale (in fact his novel Blindsight has been used as a core text for undergraduate courses ranging from ‘philosophy of mind' to ‘introductory neuropsychology'). His work is available in eighteen languages.

Journal contributors will receive a free PDF copy of their final work upon publication. Print copies of the journal may also be purchased by contributors at half price.
