This journal is theme-based. While the inaugural issue covered a few diverse yet critical areas of the present day environment, the subsequent five issues explored themes of ‘The Sacred Space’, ‘Management of Change’, ‘Architecture Education’, ‘The Technology of Building’ and,'Transformation, Reuse & Rehabilitation.’

The upcoming seventh issue (Volume 4, No. 2), for which we are now inviting contributions, is dedicated to studies on ''Asian Modernity and its Architectural Manifestations’. The choice of the theme is inspired by the need to create a environment for critical discussion on the evolution and current status of the highly complex processes of 'modernisation' and the culturally distinct 'modernity' which impacted the traditional environments of Asian countries during the 19th and the 20th Century.

The objective is to describe and document both the built expressions of the wide range of modernising processes, cultural phenomena and social, scientific and technological progress that evolved in Asia, as also the legacy of the unique and, often unknown modernist edifices of its post-colonial era. The Asian struggle for recognition of the modern and modernist architecture as heritage also forms a vital part of this debate.

Writings can include, among others, analytical studies profiling the common characteristics of Asian Modernity and/or the specific cases of various countries in Asia. We also welcome case examples of how Modernity in Asia differs from the notions and expressions of that in the West; deliberations on factors that guided the transformation and modernisation of traditional Asian built environment; descriptions of various adaptive patterns of modernisation and, explanations of the diversity in patterns of modernisation in different Asian contexts. Other crucial issues under consideration could be identification and analysis of the elements of modernisation introduced into the traditional Asian world; the interaction of the new / modern with the established / traditional ideas and institutions and its impact on architecture and town planning; objective analyses of significant trends of social, cultural and architectural changes; the dynamics of cultural and technological change, and, the new typologies that emerged from these encounters.

This is an invitation for submission of your research papers and other original, previously unpublished technical writings suited to the above-mentioned theme that has been selected for the upcoming issue of ‘Creative Space’. Please visit to send your submissions, or, e-mail them directly to

We look forward to receiving your research paper and its valuable contribution for enhancing awareness of the significance of this critical aspect of our built environment.
