Instructions for authors

With its focus on the pluralism of positions and project perspectives regarding the city, territory and architecture, this journal aims to open up an interdisciplinary debate on the relational nature of projects for spaces where people settle and interrelate.

A comparison between various scientific fields is therefore encouraged, also involving knowledge that was previously to some extent implicit or neglected by urban projects, but that has gradually increased in importance and sometimes become essential for exploring new ways of conceiving of urban space in the contemporary society.

The City, Territory and Architecture journal (CTA) is dedicated to sharing scientific (theoretical and applied) knowledge and positions on spaces of city and territory. Its primary goal is to explore the conceptual and physical relations between city, territory and architecture.
