Today we are in the midst of a paradox: although fast, web-based media seems to threaten the very existence of slow architecture media, the amount of p.o.p. magazines has increased in the last few years. Furthermore, and discarding arguments about fast consumption of information, some editorial projects aimed at a slow and attentive audience have managed to succeed in the middle of a huge flow of information. It seems that once the novelty of fast media has decreased, p.o.p. architecture magazines have regained the space they once had. However, are they the same kind of magazines we once knew? How can we explain the fact that an old format may stay alive against all odds? Is it stubbornness, nostalgia, or is it something else? The reasons behind this paradox are what we would like to discuss and explore in this session.
P.O.P. will be a roundtable on printed architecture magazines which seeks to discuss the contemporary resurfacing of the stubborn and yet amazing endeavor of publishing on paper. We have gathered some of the most interesting editorial projects of the contemporary scene not only to share experiences and knowledge but also to witness a plethora of different discourses that still consider the p.o.p. format structural for architecture.
