Design in Unreal Times

As part of the Faculty of Architecture’s Going Public program one publication will be produced each year, with all the Engagements highlighting specific topics within the year themes. The publications will be distributed via tutors and staff but also as supplement to an architectural magazine to reach an international broad audience. The publications will involve studio work and research and represent a large part of the faculty’s community. Possibly the publication strategy will be enlarged with online formats.

Design in Unreal Times is published as a supplement to Volume Magazine #58, reflecting thoughts and practice on the Covid conditions during educating and practicing architecture. All contributions are done by (guest)tutors and students from the Faculty of Architecture.

Publication launch on 19 April 2021!
