Issue 8

The built environment today is the most visible out come of the solutions to these needs of people in different spaces. However, even with the very significant existence of the built environment, we cannot deny the simultaneous rapid increase in somewhat more convenient use of space as determined by the users. This is the origin of Unintended consequences (whether temporary or permanent) tend to be combined with basically almost anything in our spaces: Neighborhood beauty, Heritage, Games, Art, modernism, building and space use, you name it. Nonetheless they are a critical aspect in the context of architecture and planning. 

With ANZA magazine Issue 8, we will be turning our focus on these Unintended consequences between people and spaces. We would like to tell the stories behind these Unintended consequences. We will also elaborate more on what architecture without architects truly means. 

Anza magazine invites you to write interesting and well-illustrated articles and contributions on the basic questions below. Together we would like to understand how people create and define their spaces. Contributors are required to exhaust all possible forms, methods and techniques to help one understand the topic. 

Feel free to also recommend interesting already done projects and tell us why it is so unique.

Possible guiding questions may include:

What is the Unintended Consequence in your neighborhood? 

How did it all start?

What are the pros and/or cons to it? 

How is the community affected dealing with it?

Who are the users? 

Who made/created the original intention or spatial design? Who transforms it or reinvents it?

Type of Contributions:

Anza magazine is looking for a wide range of contributions to this extensive issue. These could be texts as well as images (such as photographs, sketches, artistic impressions, plans, instructions etc.). We are not looking for scientific papers but for articles that are readable for a large audience which demonstrate the highest standards with regards to content while remaining enjoyable to read.
