Cidália Ferreira Silva is an Assistant Professor of Architecture and Urbanism at the University of Minho’s School of Architecture. Her research on Time expands the field of architecture to investigate other opportunities to engage meaningfully with contemporary places-life. By see(d)(k)ing Time, she holds uncertainty as part of the creative process that crosses time-space, embracing “(not-)Knowing” as the primary focus of her research.
She is passionate about the acts of thinking, writing, and generating ideas, practices she utilizes with her research students as she leads them to discover ways to catalyze their potential to create original knowledge.
‘Interconnection’ is one of the key-words in her research, and functions not only as the method to seek ways of crossing fields, scale(s) and time(s), but also to connect the “I” with the “other” in a dialogical practice of consciousness. Published in international journals and a participant in various interdisciplinary conferences, Professor Silva is completing her first book entitled “37 Lived time tools for see(d)(k)ing (not-)knowing.”
Articles published in The International Journal of the Constructed Environment are peer reviewed by scholars who are active members of The Constructed Environment Research Network. Reviewers may be past or present conference delegates, fellow submitters to the journal, or scholars who have volunteered to referee articles and have been screened by Common Ground’s editorial team. This engagement with the Research Network, as well as Common Ground’s criterion-based evaluation system, distinguishes our peer-review process from those of journals that have a more top-down, editor-centric approach to refereeing.
The International Journal of the Constructed Environment reviewers are assigned to articles based on their academic interests and scholarly expertise. In recognition of the valuable feedback and publication recommendations that they provide, reviewers may request an official letter/certificate.
