Archizines!

The print media, often discussed these days as a dying breed, is alive and well in New York City. Small print-run, specialty publications are able to explore all aspects of architecture in new ways. What are some of the ideas I’ve seen discussed in these small architecture publications?

Visual Arts
Social sciences
Squatters
Architectural Theory
Geographies
Bio-Technical Landscapes
The Pedosphere
Inspiration
Non-Architectural Architecture

The complexity of views, approaches, and applications that exist within the field of architecture is growing, and smaller publications have an inherit flexibility that enables a discourse that is unprecedented. Is it possible that small niche publications can help demonstrate what mainstream publications cannot?

“Perhaps it’s a function of the slow job market or perhaps the new generation is feeling left out of the mainstream design press, whatever is causing the rush of publishing activity is certainly a positive thing for architecture and urbanism.” –Susan S. Szenasy, Editor in Chief of Metropolis magazine
A world traveling exhibition, Archizines, at New York’s Storefront for Art and Architecture that runs through June 9, is promoted as a “showcase of new architecture fanzines, journals. and magazines from around the world that provide an alternative to the established architectural press.” Here is a photo tour.
