This journal investigates the idea of a project in architecture—that is, the pursuit of an intellectual problem or critical agenda that transcends an architect’s individual works. Given the present diffuseness of the discipline, and the proliferation of media platforms that indiscriminately celebrate the imagery and culture of design, it is essential to distinguish the architects, ideas and works that take a critical stance on architecture and the world in which it is situated. Project is a platform for architects to name the stakes for architecture, to articulate in drawings and words their projects and their ambitions for the discipline today. We aim to continually broaden the diversity of our contributors and to provide young architects with the opportunity to set their ideas down in print, with all of the seriousness that print—which is slow, expensive and lasting—demands.
Project is edited by four young architects living and working in New York, Los Angeles, and the UK. It is also supported by an advisory board of practicing architects and educators.
