Call for Submissions [Sep. 10th, 2005|01:41 pm]


I am currently organizing EDAR37, a conference on the built environment, to be held in Atlanta GA May 3-7, 2006. This conference involves projects, papers, workshops, poster sessions, and intensives on a wide array of topics pertaining to the built environment. If you would be interested in submitting

EDRA, The Environmental Design Research Association (http://www.edra.org) invites you to join such distinguished speakers as former UN Ambassador Andrew Young, Mindspring and Greenstreet Properties founder Charles Brewer and others at our upcoming annual conference, EDRA37, May 3 - 7, 2006 in Atlanta GA. The conference attracts a distinguished mix of architects, urban planners, designers, academics, students and more for unique and in-depth discussions on all matters relating to people and how they interact with the built environment.

EDRA welcomes proposals on a wide array of topics. The theme for this year's conference is "Beyond Conflict". John Dewey wrote that “conflict is the gadfly of thought,” and EDRA37 highlights the many ways conflict stimulates new ways of seeing and creating the built environment. Conflicts emerge in many ways and take many forms, but they often result in new designs. Atlanta’s own conflicts, from the Civil War to Civil Rights, highlight this growth. At its worst, conflict destroys those things we treasure. Even then, however, it creates the stimulus for the creation of new treasures, be they physical or intellectual. At its best, conflict allows those who once opposed each other to find common ground and move far beyond where they were when the conflict began.

EDRA welcomes proposals on a wide array of topics. Our networks include such varied interests as Environmental Gerontology, Cities and Globalization, Active Living, Communication, Health, Workplace, Children, Cyber-environments and more. In addition to networking opportunities EDRA37 offers AIA continuing education credits. More information about this year's conference can be found here.

The deadline for submitting presentation proposals is Oct. 1, 2005.
