Conditions: The Latest Architecture and News

Call for Submissions - Conditions Issue #10: GOSSIP

Issue #9: New Knowledge - New Practices?
Issue #9: New Knowledge - New Practices?

What is the function of gossip in architecture? Let’s face it, architects don’t openly criticize or debate each other’s work in public; they prefer to gossip within their chosen networks, aiding social bonding through subtle passive aggression. Gossip has always been around in architecture as one of the oldest ways of sharing, maneuvering and convincing. But how does it manifest itself today within the instant culture of internet and social media?

These are the questions Conditions Magazine is hoping you will be able to answer through an abstract design for their new, upcoming issue. More information on the call for submissions after the break.
