This call is to stimulate original writing on the subject of best practices as innovative design guidelines for the open space network at metropolitan and local level. Sponsored by the Ateneo Italo Tedesco a 2 days seminar took place in Rome (5 - 6 December 2011) where Italian and German relators compared experiences. The debate has been lively and vivacious focusing public attention on outstanding projects and practises.To implement the debate a publication will be arranged editing the seminar statements but also including written works selected by an international jury.
The research team coordinate by Lucia Nucci and Esther Giani invite researchers at any level to participate at the call for paper. 

Over the past ten years the topic of open space network has generated many challenging and interesting discussions both inside and outside academia, and almost all programmes in architecture have been influenced by the theme. Despite the many discussions, it’s still hard to define what best practices for the open space network at metropolitan and local level is. In the more established research fields outside the creative disciplines, best practices to set liveable open spaces within urban areas or brownfield situations are neither directly overlooked nor openly encoded. Italy probably is slightly behind other countries such as Germany, France, United Kingdom, who seem more opened up for new types of collaboration between design professions and other related fields.

The aim of the call is to stimulate research initiatives, and to communicate these initiatives as related to the broad scope of teaching and research.The call is open to all researchers at any level.
The research group calls for papers with the capacity to improve, challenge and enable a creative debate on architectural education related to the theme, best practices as innovative design guidelines for the open space network at metropolitan and local level. Both theoretically and practically oriented papers are welcome.

Submissions may take the form of reports or critical reviews dealing with conceptual or methodological developments that make a significant contribution to the theme of the research.Documents must be in English or in Italian out of consi-deration for the jury’s work.Contributions should be sent electronically to the Organi-sing Committee in PDF format only.The length should be limited to 15,000 characters with spaces; illustrations must have a quality suited for electronic and paper publication. The identity of the author must be revealed in the PDF file.All material submitted should be original ie. neither published nor entered for publication at the time of entry, but also part of former publication. In the latter case it must be clear the reference. The Organising Committee will ensure that the contributions are sent to the jury. The material must have arrived at the Organising Committee no later than 20 February 2012.


The Call is divided into two phases. In the first phase, the submissions will be evaluated by the jury and 10-15 papers will be selected. By the end of 2012 these will be published on a print volume due to be edit by the research unit (second phase).The research unit will publish all the papers considered inherent to the theme on the webpage of Planum.

The scientific jury will consist of:
Lucia Nucci, Esther Giani, Paolo Avarello, Giancarlo Carnevale, Anna Laura Palazzo, Christa Reicher, Max Welch Guerra.
