The Journal of Living Architecture (JOLA), a Green Roofs for Healthy Cities publication, has issued a Call for Submittals for manuscripts for the special topic issue of Kinetic Living Architecture.
What does this entail? Mobile, movable, and kinetic forms of living architecture. This is a great opportunity for you to share your research:
“This themed issue will profile the current state of projects, describe research findings, and deliver commentary to advance our understanding of living architecture that possesses movable traits or specific kinetic characteristics for green roofs, biofilters, screens, and walls. All submittal and dissemination will proceed within the Journal of Living Architecture’s current, peer-reviewed, open access format.” ~ JOLA Call for Submittals
