TECHNOLOGY | ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN is a peer-reviewed international journal dedicated to the advancement of scholarship in the field of building technology and its translation, integration, and impact on architecture and design. TAD aims to become an essential source for new knowledge about how we think, make and use technology within the building arts. Published articles feature primary research in emerging materials, construction techniques, design integration, structures, building systems, energy, environmental design, information technology, digital fabrication, sustainability and resiliency, project delivery, the history and theory of technology, and building technology education. Intended for researchers, educators, and practitioners, the journal advances and transforms the current discourse on building-based technologies with the goal of expanding, reimagining and challenging its role for architecture and design.
Moreover, TAD is committed to positioning building technology within a broader range of cultural, ethical and critical contexts to identify how it can and does contribute ‘value’ to architecture and design. It also invites manuscripts that review research and analytical methodologies, and field bibliographies associated with building-based technologies in order to embrace their projective potential as forms of cultural practice.
The journal publishes peer reviewed and non peer reviewed manuscripts in the following categories. The majority of the journal’s content will be comprised of peer reviewed manuscripts. Non-peered reviewed manuscripts are invited by the Editorial Board and include those listed below.
