Call for Papers – Issue #19 News

Frequency is the number of occurrences of a repeating event per unit of time. The time frame is the duration of cycles in a recurring event, where the time frame is the reciprocal of the frequency.

FREQUENCY is a dimension defined by actions and time.

FREQUENCY is not only defined by conditions enabling optimal phases, but also by discordant conditions reducing interferences between frequencies.

FREQUENCY is the distribution of size by rank, in decreasing order of size. The data could vary significantly in scale, but distributions frequently follow a power-law distribution.

STUDIO Frequency Call for Papers

In recent months we observed the power of low and high frequencies in the city, which was manifested in an economy clash, clean environments, riots, and public health hazards, creating the necessity for architects, urban designer, and theorists, to rethink the established concept of the city, public space and user interaction.

STUDIO #19 FREQUENCY aims to understand how the city reacts to extreme situations and how architecture can interpret and act on its observations, data, and future necessities. What is the long-term consequence of low and high FREQUENCY?

How to predict and interpret the FREQUENCY in our cities? What are the values and qualities of the architectural FREQUENCY? How is FREQUENCY changing the way we live, design, and look at the city?
