Following the success of the foundation congress in Riccione (RN, Italy, 3-4May, 2009), RETEVITRUVIO.IT, the Italian Academic inter-university network of Architectural Design, invites scholars, architects and the interested public from all over the world to the first international congress "Architectural Design between Teaching and Research" on the issues and the problems of Architectural Design. The congress will be held in Bari, May 2011 .
Transcending the constraints of traditional cultural and disciplinary boundaries, the 1 st RETEVITRUVIO Congress will be open to contributors associated with all disciplines focused on and around the architectural design. The Congress will offer an open forum for presenting the broad field of architectural design theories, methods, researches and products.
Among paper sessions, keynotes and panel discussions, there will be plenty of time and opportunity to offer what a modern and reflexive congress on architectural design needs: a vivid forum for the exchange of ideas and experience among international scholars, students, as well as practicing architects and engineers.
The Congress will be hosted by the Faculty of Architecture of Bari Polytechnic University. Organization of the Congress will be undertaken in collaboration with the Retevitruvio Advisory Committee, as well as with the National Support Group, composed of representatives of several related Schools of Architecture and organizations. An International Scientific Committee will peer review abstracts and papers submitted.
