STUDIO #18 – Call for Papers

‘ANALOGIC’ – Issue No. 18

by STUDIO© Architecture and Urbanism magazine

ANALOGIC is a dimension that varies continuously as a variable, assuming an endless amount of values. The etymology of ANALOGIC originates from the union of two Greek words, “Ana” and “Logos”, which indicates “something similar” or “the same word”.

STUDIO Architecture and Urbanism magazine Italy - Analogic

In recent years we are observing the weakening of the ANALOGIC architecture, which is molded into an endless proliferation of unique architectural objects that decline any fixed references.

ANALOGIC is the public space; ANALOGIC is the relational space for citizens; ANALOGIC is a composite procedure with a surrealist base, starting from certain events of the urban condition; ANALOGIC is an alternative way to address the city, approaching imagination, intuition and personal interests; ANALOGIC makes the city an artifact, an idea of type, architectural autonomy, and history as a collective imagination;

STUDIO # 18 ANALOGIC aims to understand how architecture negotiates its formal condition and its social role, asking itself: what are the ANALOGIC processes to use to dodge repetitions? What are the ANALOGIC methods to have a real force on the transformation of the city?

What are the ANALOGIC approaches in which architects can create a contemporary city?


We are accepting proposals for our forthcoming issue ANALOGIC Contributions may be submitted in different forms – essays, photographic essay, illustrations, data visualizations, case studies and projects, interviews, comic strips and even novels – exploring the issue in any field of design: architecture, urbanism, art, photography, graphic design, film… etc.

Modular, Prefab & Construction Tech Senate, NY, USA

April 28-29, 2020

New York, United States of America

World’s tallest modular hotel to rise in NYC

Scheduled to rise in the fall season of 2019, Marriott’s new AC Hotel New York NoMad will represent a major milestone for the hotel chain’s drive to encourage North American hotel developers to embrace modular as the next-gen construction method.

Danny Forster & Architecture, the firm responsible for designing the $65 million modular project, aims to erect the 168-room, 360-foot-tall tower over a 90-day period at the rate of an entire floor a day. Marking a turning point for industry confidence in prefabrication, Marriott is actively incentivizing development companies that leverage prefabrication for construction to the hotel chain’s advantage. Since its initial research into modular construction in 2014, Marriot has gone on to open over 31 Marriot-brand hotels – all low-rise structures – that include prefabricated guestrooms and/or bathrooms.

The Modular, Prefab and Construction Tech Senate is aimed to create a premier destination for professionals working across the built environment to gain insights and experience firsthand the latest innovations and opportunities in modern methods of construction.

Key Benefits of Attending:

  • Addressing the causes of the productivity gap in the global construction industry and introducing the right tools and strategies to overcome it
  • Exploring innovations to improve processes and workflow to drive efficiency, safety and sustainability of your modular and prefab projects
  • Delving into the cutting-edge ideas, processes and systems being developed in the construction industry across single-trade, multi-trade and modular manufacturing processes
  • Enhancing collaboration between project stakeholders in from planning and design to improving fabrication efficiency and streamlining logistics and job site operations
  • Exploring the latest in construction technology shaping from drones and laser scanning, to robotics and AR, to IoT and automation and how you can leverage them in your business
