Faktur: Documents and Architecture
Editor: Pep Avilés  Assistant Editor: Matthew Kennedy
Launch Price: £15 RRP: £18

Faktur: Documents and Architecture is a new journal that celebrates research as the source of architectural imagination. Faktur is interested in new and innovative methods for presenting and discussing architecture, methods that understand academic and non-academic research as a crucial precondition to developing critical, contemporary projects. We seek to present topics, locations, and architectural concerns that function as micro-narratives illuminating larger issues of global culture. We are interested in the construction of material arguments from local perspectives, linking them to longdurée historical threads within architecture on the one hand, and current political, economic, and cultural concerns on the other. Finally, we are interested in how these investigations affect, inform, or influence the design processes of contemporary architectural practices. Faktur operates between the factual authority of research and journalism, and the atmospheric and material license of architecture, responding to what we perceive as an urgent need to provide new grounds upon which to discuss architecture.

The first issue of Faktur includes articles by Ines Weizman, Jason Oddy, Manuel Herz, Carly Gertler, and Cristina Díaz Moreno and Efrén García Grinda (amid.cero9).

Join us for a drinks reception with the editors and contributors to celebrate the launch of Faktur: Documents and Architecture.

All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
