Techne has been increasingly consolidating in the last years and we believe this is a valuable result, especially as the journal represents an example of independent scientific publishing practices. 
Its release is still made possible by the commitment and energy of an emerging generation of researchers, who have invested in an independent open access peer-reviewed journal released under the Creative Commons licence.
In the next years, we plan to strengthen our position as an international platform that offers a space for novel intellectual inter and crossdisciplinary thinking. In this perspective of a more incisive positioning of the journal we inaugurate today a New Special Series.  

In this new Series, invited contributors, belonging to different countries and disciplinary backgrounds, will debate around Architecture, Built Environment and Urban Transformations.  Special Series’s Issues are published as a separate Issue of the journal, on an irregular basis and may be funded by sources other than the journal’s publisher.”

"Verticality/Horizontality in Architecture"

The call identifies some areas of refection concerning programs, processes, strategies, projects and technical tools, aimed at encouraging the development of new policies for the transformation of the territory and the built environment. With regard to the different realities of scale, it will be possible to understand tools and methods aimed at updating the form of the city in the medium and long term, with the aim of improving the quality of life and ensuring the sustainability of transformations.

The main thematic areas concern:
• density and settlement logics: models and intervention techniques for urban density; tools and design strategies for land consumption reduction; hard and so territorial infrastructures for a fair access to the resources.
• growth and development processes: circular economy growth models for urban and peri-urban areas; “ruralisation” of the compact city and production for subsistence; functional mixitè in horizontal/ vertical development models.
• typological and technological experimentation: new research and typological/technological experimentation fields; technological and design innovations in vertical/horizontal architectures; role of production and of the industry in the densification project.
