We are excited to announce the call for submissions for Project Issue Six, which will be guest-edited by Parsa Khalili and John Capen Brough. Submissions are due August 1st and submissions guidelines can be found here. Submissions will also be considered for Issue Seven.
Project Issue Six revolves around contemporary issues of architectural theory and practice from the perspective of those operating outside of the two primary cultural capitals for architectural production in the United States: New York and Los Angeles. It focuses on practitioners who advocate for the possibility of a critical position for architecture in a particular context, revealing divergent trajectories, highlighting different problems and provoking alternative solutions and speculations. Responding to unique circumstances outside of North America’s largest coastal cities, a new cast of architects are redefining what it means to develop a project of architecture today.
