In the 15th anniversary issue of Log, number 44, architects representing diverse perspectives each question, in different ways, the place of architecture and architectural discourse in the world today.
In this issue, Rafael Moneo searches for a new historical paradigm no longer centered on modernism; Jesse Reiser and Nanako Umemoto evaluate the forces that shape their architectural project; Pier Vittorio Aureli offers a comprehensive history of the way the grid has been used to organize the socioeconomics of cities; Michelle Chang proposes vagueness as a critical position and source of creativity; and Michael Meredith curates 44 “low-resolution” houses.
George Baird and xx voto respond to Log 42: “Disorienting Phenomenology” and ANY 4: “Architecture and the Feminine,” respectively. Renee Kemp-Rotan and Ludovico Centis evaluate monuments to the complicated American histories of racial injustice and nuclear weapons development. Alicia Imperiale and Christophe Van Gerrewey explore works by Luigi Moretti and OMA.
