Join Archinect in celebrating the launch of "Normal," the third issue of Archinect's print journal, Ed.
The launch party will be held this Saturday, August 3rd, from 7:30 pm at Archinect Outpost. The address is 900 E 4th Street, in Downtown LA's Arts District, under the same roof as the A+D Museum, entrance on 4th.
“Normal,” the third installment of Ed, is produced by Archinect, edited by Nicholas Korody (Editor-in-Chief) / Joanna Kloppenburg (Deputy Editor), and designed by Folder Studio. The issue features a diverse range of contributions by significant architectural thinkers and practitioners that tackle questions surrounding the norms of the discipline and its normative functions.
The issue aims to denormalize and denaturalize what we take for givens in the discipline and profession: primarily, its institutionalized social and labor relations, and their misogynistic, racist, corrupt, and oppressive character. At the same time, it looks at the ways in which architecture presumes–and, in turn, produces–a normative subject with a normative body. And it imagines alternatives through a series of contemporary case studies.
Come join us with a first-look at the issue. Chat with Nicholas, Ed's Editor-in-Chief and have a cold drink, or two, on us.
