Journal for Architecture and Literature

The Writingplace journal for Architecture and Literature is the first peer-reviewed, open-access journal of architecture and literature, focused on the exchange of knowledge on the relationship between architecture and literature. Through thematic issues, it aims to address and promote alternative ways of looking at architecture, urban places and landscapes through literary methods.

Next to academic articles the journal is open to accounts of experiments in education and works of design or spatial analysis in which literary tools have been explored. The journal follows earlier projects of the Writingplace team including the international Writingplace conference on literary methods in architectural research and design in 2013 and the book Writingplace: Investigations in Architecture and Literature in 2016. In 2019, the Writingplace team received an EU COST Action grant for the international network Writing Urban Places, which is expected to result (among others) in a number of issues of the Writingplace journal.
