The folks behind CLOG, the publication that "slows things down" and takes a good, long look at the issues facing architecture today, launched their latest edition - National Mall - today with an event at MoMA PS1. The event, called "THE FUTURE OF THE MEMORIAL," was a part of MoMA PS1's Sunday Sessions and included a conversation, hosted by CLOG, between Friedrich St. Florian, Nicholas Benson and Lucia Allais.
This issue of CLOG will examine the highly symbolic space of our National Mall. As their website explains: "The Mall functions as a place of protest and celebration, as well as a place of memorialization and education." CLOG: National Mall thus considers what it means to restore and re-build this space and, more importantly, questions: how should it be done?
Our review of National Mall is still in the works, but why not take a look at our latest CLOG reviews in the mean time?
- CLOG: Rendering "CLOG: Rendering is, in my opinion, the best issue yet. Through dozens of fascinating, concise articles and a handful of illustrative, quirky images, it takes on an enormous question often over-looked in the architectural world: what is a rendering? "
- CLOG: Data Space "What does it look like to give the virtual, physical form? As every CLOG edition, Data Space explores “from multiple viewpoints and through a variety of means, a single subject particularly relevant to architecture now” (5) and this subject, how to design “the infrastructure of invisible data” (103), could very well be the defining question of our age."
