After a reflective sabbatical following the 7th issue, The Cornell Journal of Architecture has recently launched itself back on the scene of primer architectural journals. The long awaited 8th issue strives to be “about the now, the new, and the next in architecture, while simultaneously acknowledging that every possible future is intrinsically linked to the existent, to the present and its attendant past. At the heart of issue 8: RE is the understanding that the creative act itself is reiterative; that in rethinking, recombining, reshuffling, recycling, and reimagining aspects of the world around us, we produce work that both belongs to the current moment and establishes new future trajectories.”
