Editors' Notes - Singularity of Urban Architectural Research: On Knowledge Co-Production of a Transdisciplinary Kind
Other text in scientific journal, 2022

Editors note
This mixed issue presents five scientific articles, two book reviews and two reviews of recent PhD theses. The articles have been framed by the concept of disciplinarity – the way they cross boundaries and challenge architecture as a complex discipline involving several external academic subjects and professional fields of knowledge. They illustrate several
aspects of disciplinarity in architecture and urban design, such as design interventions as a tool in research-by-design, of becoming a cosmopolitan citizen-architect, on potentials in design and construction, the concept of place in urbanism and the story of an abandoned mosque project in Helsinki. Before we go into the specific articles and comment upon them, we would like to initiate a discussion on the question of transdisciplinarity as a singular feature of architectural research.
