Caliper Journal – Issue 07/08: SHIFT/TIME
Publisher: Caliper Journal, Editors: Simone Chait, Yuchen Gao, Connor Hanna, Victoria Marquez, Jack Murray and Yiling Shen, Format: Softcover, 13.5 x 19.5cm, 200pp
This is a double feature issue featuring over 200 pages, fifty contributors, and interviews with Peggy Deamer, Beau De Belle, and Dr Jon Goodbun – as well as exceptional student and alumnus work from RMIT University, Harvard GSD, the University of Melbourne, The Bartlett School of Architecture, Monash University and the Royal College of Art.
The dual issue is broken up into two parts, SHIFT and TIME, the first of which mostly acts as a time capsule for the strangeness of this year, where what we knew to be a functional city was turned on its head. In a similar yet contrasting vein, TIME begins to interrogate our individual perspectives on time and space, how these perspectives have changed throughout this year, and how our present might impact the futures to come. Overall, both issues show a proliferating sense of hope, or at least faith, that things might be different, and that architecture might be a vehicle through which those futures could be realised.
