Fourth International Conference on Architecture and Urban Design (4ICAUD-2021) NEW & OLD NORMALITY POST-2020 24 – 26 November 2021

About this event

The Department of Architecture at Epoka University, welcomes participants to the Fourth International Conference on Architecture and Urban Design 4ICAUD-2021, to be held on 24 – 26 November 2021 in Tirana, Albania. Building upon the success of the previous three editions of ICAUD, the conference promises a wide range of topics on architecture and urban design and an international audience of academics and practitioners from around the world.

The Global Event that affected the world in early 2020 has had some huge reflections in many of the design fields, forcing architects and engineers, urban planners, and designers to rethink many of the consolidated knowledge in the designing approaches. Some of that changes will be temporary and destined to going back in a short time; meanwhile others seem fated to become permanent and able to challenge our personal and social mindset, as designers as well as end-users.

Those ongoing changes also stress the importance of a rising trans-disciplinary interaction among the diverse field of knowledge, having it affected the whole people real-life realm at a global scale.

The 4ICAUD-2021) aims to animate a deep “think-tank” moment on how we have been challenged and on what we are gaining in the switch between NEW & OLD NORMALITY POST-2020. Taking advantage of the time experienced and ripened one year later than the beginning of the pandemic era, to draft what will be the after-pandemic era in the fields of design, and not only in that.

The 4ICAUD is structured into two parallel tracks.

a) the Old-Normal track, which will be conducted conventionally through abstract submission, its acceptance/non-acceptance, full article submission, final review and acceptance and conference presentation in one of the arranged parallel sessions.

b) the New-Normal track, which will be conducted differently through Extended Abstract submission, its review and acceptance, presentation in one of the conference's "Research workshops” under the driving of a Discussant, co-building of the common frame for a scientific article (articulated into some paragraphs according to the numbers of authors involved in the hotspot), final co-article submission (one month and a half after the conference), its review and acceptance.
