ANY Post

To break the blog hiatus, I present you with: shameless plugging!

Within the next couple of weeks, Log 19 will be on the shelves (CMU has a subscription, so if you’re in Pittsburgh, you can find it in Hunt Library). There are a lot of articles in this issue that are particularly relevant to discussions we’ve had both here and in studio, which is partially why I’m mentioning it.

“Interest in the social dimension of architecture is again gaining ground. Log 19 investigates the reemergence of questions such as what role can or should architecture play in society. The parametric is alternatively valorized and disavowed; the ultimate consequences of climate change and environmental catastrophe are raised; and a new course for architecture is found in Badiou’s philosophy and Finnish architecture.”

In your perusal of Log, beware. In the words of Kazys Varnelis: “Note that a brief glance in the bookstore won’t suffice. Like any good naughty magazine, the issue is shrink-wrapped and if you unwrap it your fumbling efforts will be visible for all to see.”
