Project is a forum for critical thought in architecture. 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 produced. Project publishes both new work and writing; it is a platform for architects to name the stakes for architecture, to articulate their projects and their ambitions for the discipline today.

Issues of Project do not have specific themes; rather, each issue acts as a section through the discipline, revealing critical questions confronting architects at a given moment. Issue Two addresses topics from sustainability to legibility and from the city to the celestial. It features contributions from Amale Andraos and Dan Wood, the Architectural Association, Kelly Bair, Joe Day, Nathan Hume and Abigail Coover, Caroline O’Donnell, Michael Osman, Jason Payne, Albert Pope, Productora, Peter Trummer, and Andrew Zago.
Please join the editors of Project at Van Alen Books to celebrate the launch of the journal’s second issue.
