addresses design as the core of the architecture discipline and investigates the creation, constitution, and mediation of architectural knowledge.

aims to explore processes, procedures and results from practice and research with particular attentiveness to the architectural design and to investigate epistemologies of aesthetic practices and research.

assembles contributions referring to the constitution and body of knowledge in architecture, aiming to exploit specific architectural knowledge, its mediation, investigation and research.

as the entiteling terminology, refers to the multidirectional nature of impacts and subject areas of the architectural discipline, including architectural design, construction, and technology, landscape architecture, urban planning and design, history and theory of architecture as well as affinities to other fields in interdisciplinary investigation.

publishes two Curated Editions a year, assembling contributions explicitly dedicated to an overarching investigation of a superordinate subjects from the field of research and knowledge creation in the discipline of architecture.

The thematic framing is given by the respective editors in a Call for Contributions.

provides an Open Platform to publish all kinds of investigation and research on architectural knowledge, its particularities, the creation, providing and mediation of it as well as its discourse within the principle objective of the journal.


on superodinate framing subjects are published twice a year. Calls for Contributions are launched publically and contributions to the thematic framing of the respective edition are selected in a double-blind Peer-Review procedure.

The curated editions are published in print and Open Access at transcript Academic Publishing Bielefeld, Germany. They are elaborated and edited in the context of the BauHow5 network and associated institutions.

explores the movements triggered by spatial, situational, and corporeal experiences and the sensations of being moved.

investigates lived experience as source for the constitution of knowledge. It is concerned with the movements of exploration and the inner sensations of being moved by experience. Addressing situational experience allows bringing implicit dimensions of perception to attention.

is looking for a tangible understanding to emerge in the actual encounter, as well as connected to memory and imagination. Practitioners and scholars from various disciplines are invited, to open the realm of discussion for theoretical, applied, and practice-related forms of research.

alignes contributions to enrich the discourse of architecture and its versatile dimensions. Theorists and practitioners from all disciplines are invited to reflect upon »Spatial Dimensions of Moving Experience« and to bring in their specific observations gained in practice and/or teaching.

is concerned with practice-oriented research.

The title of this issue is borrowed from Species of Spaces and Other Pieces by George Perec (1974).

The term »thesis« comes from the Greek meaning »something put forth«, and refers to a proposition. How we know is as much mediated through the thesis’ form as it is through its content.

In reference to George Perec, »Species of Theses« takes the love for playing with forms, genres, and arrangements as its program.

The appropriation of specific formats or modes of representation (such as an archive, exhibition, performance) can prompt imagining other ways of performing research, and communicating findings with diverse audiences.
