STUDIO Architecture and Urbanism magazine: Call for papers - HERETIC

Unconventional / Unorthodox / Unlikeness / Breaking the grid / Different / Alternative / Outside the box / Countercultural.

HERETIC is anything or anyone who does not conform to an established attitude or principles.

What happens when architecture is demolished and doubted, when it is so fragmentary that it calls for a reinvention of its fundamental categories and practices?

In contemporary practice, there are innumerable minor actions able to produ- ce just a chaotic variety rather than a proper direction in the architectural discourse.

What does it mean for architecture and urbanism to be labeled as a HERETIC? Is it different from the status quo comparable to being HERETIC?

How can a HERETIC Architect break the rigid grid and the constraints of this time?

What are the HERETIC processes for the city's transformation?
