The University of Detroit Mercy School of Architecture is seeking articles, projects, graphics, and other creative content for our theory and criticism journal Dichotomy.
The term UGLY is often associated with any project that veers from the realm of easy and accepted solutions. In reality it is the skin of an investigation that challenges our perception of form and architecture. Dichotomy 19 seeks to understand this complexity through the conversation of its own social and cultural aesthetic. Submissions should reflect upon how the line between beautiful and UGLY is blurred by original understandings of design, architecture, urbanism, or community development. Abstract Deadline: December 1st, 2012.
Submit your 300 word abstract with three images in PDF format by December 1, 2012 to: firstname.lastname@example.org
