Call for Chapters

Proposals Submission Deadline: January 20, 2018
Full Chapters Due: February 28, 2018
Submission Date: June 30, 2018


Architecture is an art or science of designing buildings and psysical environment with an aesthetic creativity and it depends on social structure, social needs, economic datas, environment and technological development. From this point of view artchitecture can be shaped by the culture of the societies, their beliefs, surround environment, construction materials and technology. When we look at past we can easily see that there is always a strong relation between culture, environment and architecure.

The primary objective of the proposed publication is that of Reference material for scholars and architect practitioners who need a holistic view of the field that is not normally found in publications on architecture. The secondary objective is to provide a foundation for other similar books on the subject. The book should be published because there are few reference / resource materials available on architecture that encompasses a variety of aspects such as cultural influences, environment and technical issues related to the subject.

Target Audience
The primary intended audience is scholars who have the need for qualified Reference material regarding the subject matter of the proposed publication as outlined above. While having academic rigor, the book will be written in a way such that it can also be understood by non-academics and non-specialists who have the educational background to comprehend the importance of the proposed publication.
