Founded in 1999, the Nexus Network Journal (NNJ) is a peer-reviewed journal for researchers, professionals and students engaged in the study of the application of mathematical principles to architectural design. Its goal is to present the broadest possible consideration of all aspects of the relationships between architecture and mathematics, including landscape architecture and urban design.

  • Call for Papers: Urban Settlements and Cosmology

    Guest Editors:
    Olimpia Niglio (Hokkaido University, Graduate School Humanities, and Human Sciences, Japan)
    Rana P.B. Singh (formerly Institute of Science, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India)

    The main purpose of this issue is:
    to analyze the relation between urban planning and cosmology;
    to understand how this dialogue has helped to build important historical settlements;
    to see how it is reinterpreted today in terms of landscape cosmology.

  • Call for Papers - Modelling: Conceiving, Testing, Defining, Convincing

    Guest Editor:
    João Pedro Xavier, Faculty of Architecture at the University of Porto

    Researchers are invited to submit articles covering these fields, taking into account the role of all kinds of models in the conception, testing, definition and communication of architectural ideas and artifacts. Although we welcome papers covering different historical periods, we encourage a focus on contemporary practices where modelling – either conceptual, physical or virtual – is a key feature.
