THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED!
Publishing plays multiple roles in contemporary architecture. It can consolidate new movements, promote public awareness of design culture, advance research and scholarship, and support alternative modes of practice. These synergies are explored by a panel of experts assembled for 'Publishing Architecture,' a public discussion organized in conjunction with Room One Thousand, the Department of Architecture's student journal. The panel participants are:
- Robert Gonzalez, founding editor of AULA: Architecture & Urbanism in las Americas
- Nancy Levenson, editor and executive director of Places Journal
- Amanda Reeser-Lawrence, editor of PRAXIS: Journal for Writing + Building
- Avery Trufelman, producer of the podcast 99% Invisible
The 2020 issue of Room One Thousand will be unveiled at the event reception following the panel discussion.
