January/February 2024

Feature: Third Places 
Community Centers 
Windows and Doors

Sociologist Ray Oldenburg coined the term “third places,” referring to the informal public gathering spaces — like churches, cafes, bookstores, and parks — beyond home and work where people spend time together. Once prevalent, these types of spaces are becoming increasingly inaccessible for many and in some cases are slowly disappearing altogether. In this issue, we explore the nature of “third places” and their role in our communities today.

Feature: Biophilia 
Exterior Cladding & Facades

Biophilia is the hypothesis that humans innately seek out connections with nature and other forms of life. How does connection to nature contribute to human health and happiness, and how can architects better consider non-human life in their designs? In this issue, we study biophilic design, wellness, and habitat preservation.

Feature: Craft 
: Industrial Architecture 

The notion of craft and the love of handmade objects is romanticized — and at times even fetishized — in the design professions. But what is the meaning and importance of craft in our increasingly specialized, systematized, and digitized practices? In this issue, we delve into the philosophy and practice of object-making, and how these are being shaped by new technologies.

July/August 2024

Feature: Remote 
 Contract Furnishings 

The rise of mass transportation and the swiftly following digital age have all but eliminated the barriers once imposed by physical distance. But with the seemingly limitless possibilities offered by remote work and easy travel have come new concerns surrounding workplace culture, isolation, and global gentrification. In this issue, we examine what it means to practice architecture at a distance, abroad, and with a global workforce.

November/December 2024

Feature: Utopia 

“Utopia,” meaning “no place,” is a play on the Greek eu-topos, “a good place.” At the core of this more-than-five-centuries-old pun lies the eternal question: Can a perfect place ever be realized? In this issue, we unpack the qualities and characteristics of places we aspire to and the architecture that helps us get there.
