The Department of Architecture at the Bezalel Academy just launched a new online magazine.
Positioned between architecture, artistic practice and political thinking, the magazine invites designers, artists and writers to contribute short textual or image-based statements on shared themes that probe into contemporary issues of architectural culture.
In the first issue, Pluralism, contributors worked on topics that range from Schindler's houses in LA to forgotten Russian architecture of the post-Stalin era to attempt and outline systems whose boundaries are defined by a number of competing or harmonious interests, and "delineate the difference between plurality and pluralism; between a dry archipelago and a meaningful material environment."
