Submit to Dichotomy 23:

The University Of Detroit Mercy School Of Architecture is conducting a call for entries for the 23rd edition of Dichotomy.

Dichotomy, a student published journal, strives to be a critical link between UDM students and the discourses on design, architecture, urbanism, and community development. Like the institution, Dichotomy focuses on social justice and critical thought concerning intellectual, spiritual, ethical, and social development both in and outside of Detroit. The aim of Dichotomy is to disseminate these relevant investigations conducted by students, faculty, and professionals.

The theme of Dichotomy 23 is Hungry

To be Hungry is to experience a complex sensation which necessitates a feeling of emptiness that is often unpleasant. A sensation which left unattended can evolve into a craving that dominates our every thought and action. Being hungry is self-perpetuating; and once the deficit is filled we become increasingly dependent, increasingly desirous.

Dichotomy 23 invites you…

…to get your fill, relieve your appetites, reach out for your desires, and feed your creativity. Submissions should consider Hungry as a sense of longing relief from the starving, barren, and otherwise dissatisfied, as well as its relation to the discourse of architecture, urbanism, design, and all the arts in between.
