Divergence in Architectural Research, Vol. 2, Georgia Institute of Technology ($1,000)
Divergence in Architectural Research is an open-source scholarly publication for doctoral research in architecture and its allied fields. With two published volumes, the Divergence in Architectural Research fosters academic discourse by providing a window into the rich, diverse landscape of architectural research undertaken by doctoral students worldwide. The publication offers both a digital edition as an open-access journal and a published edition available to authors, the scientific community, and participating schools or libraries. This second volume of Divergence copes with the limitations of established boundaries within concentrations in architectural research, addressing the disadvantages of compartmentalized publications and fostering a divergent domain of such knowledge and practice.
The Divergence in Architectural Research team includes Hayri Dortdivanlioglu, Eleanna Panagoulia, and Yeinn Oh. The primary faculty advisor is Tarek Rakha.
Room One Thousand, Issue 11 ‘Sediment’, University of California, Berkeley ($1,000)
Room One Thousand is the graduate architecture journal at UC Berkeley’s College of Environmental Design, providing contemporary perspectives of the university’s surrounding built environment and engaging a community of scholars in a new collective panorama. The publication values accessible academic prose that does not compromise rigor. “Sediment” specifically explores how geological metaphors might add to our understanding of architecture’s relationship to historical landscapes, society, and nature. The issue reveals that beneath recent layers of history and customs lie layers that consciously shape the landscape both physically and metaphorically.
Room One Thousand’s editors-in-chief are Isabelle de Metz and Shelby Kendrick. Its graphics editor-in-chief is Clare Coburn and the primary faculty advisors is Greg Castillo.
URBAN Magazine, ‘Fluidity’, Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation ($1,000)
URBAN Magazine is created, edited, and published by students of Columbia University GSAPP’s Urban Planning graduate program. For more than twenty years, the publication has featured writing, interviews, photo essays, and graphic work related to urban planning and city life. This issue of URBAN Magazine, ‘Fluidity’, seeks to break down our notions of “urbanism” and the urban planning field at large as something far less binary. From changing landscapes to social infrastructure, the work portrayed in this issue challenges planning’s traditional role in shaping our world and illustrates the breadth of past, present, and future transformations.
URBAN Magazine’s editors are Olivia Jia, Ethan Floyd, and Felipe Urritia. The primary faculty advisor is Kian Goldman.
