The 8th International Conference of the Journal Sophia integrates the thematic cycle 'Landscapes of Care,' dedicated to contemporary photographic and visual practices that focus on how architecture, broadly understood, can help heal a planet in crisis.

The Conference presents a program dedicated to the theme 'Landscapes of Care: photography, film, modern architecture, and landscape heritage', which includes roundtable discussions for each panel, addressing specific topics from the Sophia journal's call, the presentation of submitted articles and visual essays, and the exhibition 'The Idea of Álvaro Siza,' by Mark Durden and João Leal.

The conference is led by the Center for Studies in Architecture and Urbanism (CEAU/FAUP) and coordinated in partnership with other institutions, namely University College Dublin (UCD), London South Bank University (LSBU), School of Media Arts and Design (ESMAD), University of Copenhagen (UCPH), and the European Centre for Documentary Research - University of South Wales (USW/eCDR).

Under the direction of Pedro Leão Neto (FAUP), the organizing and programming committee of the conference includes Hugh Campbell (UCD), Igea Troiani (LSBU), João Leal (P.PORTO / ESMAD), Mark Durden (USW/eCDR), Olívia Marques da Silva (P.PORTO / ESMAD), Rikke Munck Petersen (UCPH), and Teresa Cunha Ferreira (FAUP/CEAU).

The program of this conference comprises four roundtable discussions in which photography is explored as a significant research tool to build critical and innovative visions of architecture as a broad field of knowledge operating within larger systems with cultural, artistic, technical, and historical dimensions.

The invited speakers for the 8th International Conference of the Journal Sophia are: Maria Neto (CEAU / FAUP - UBI), Nuno Grande (FCTUC / CES), Paulo Catrica (UNL), and Rita Castro Neves (FBAUP).

Simultaneously, the exhibition 'The Idea of Álvaro Siza' is presented, bringing together the photographic work developed by Mark Durden and João Leal around two of Siza's paradigmatic buildings, namely the Carlos Ramos Pavilion and the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto, resulting in the publication of the first of three volumes in the 'scopionewspaper journal The Idea of Álvaro Siza' collection.
