  • Timothy HYDE, Constitutional Modernism.
    new york NEW YORK

    How does architecture make its appearance in civil society? How did architectural modernism function as a political and social instrument? Constitutional Modernism pursues these questions by exploring architecture, planning, and law as cultural forces in mid-century Cuba. Author Timothy Hyde’s analysis of the complex entanglements between these disciplines reconstructs how architects joined with other professionals and intellectuals in efforts to establish a stable civil society, from the promulgation of a new Cuban Constitution . . . until the Cuban Revolution. Join Hyde in conversation with architect and theorist Jorge Otero-Pailos.

  • Project.
    new york NEW YORK

    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.
