Log 38
After two successive thematic issues, Log 38 (Fall 2016) returns to its classic open form, bringing together myriad perspectives from architecture’s center and periphery. Cynthia Davidson’s expansive interview with New York architect Harry Cobb, of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, illuminates Cobb’s 60-plus years in practice, as well as the history of modernism in America. Eve Blau explores the contexts that drove the 1968 Learning from Las Vegas studio at Yale, and Pier Vittorio Aureli and Maria Shéhérazade Giudici reevaluate the archaeological roots of modern domestic space. Log 38 also features critical perspectives on the current moment in architecture, with reviews of OMA’s Fondaco dei Tedeschi, reflections on this year’s Venice Architecture Biennale, and reactions to Brexit from architects and educators affected by the vote, and even includes an imaginative look at the work of Sam Jacob Studio from 20 years in the future.

Available October 25. Preorder today!

A Question of Qualities
Jeffrey Kipnis's writing, thinking, and teaching casts architecture as both an intellectual discourse and a lived, affective experience. His essays on contemporary architects are less about making critical judgments than about explication, exegesis, and provocation. In these eleven essays, written between 1990 and 2008, he considers projects, concepts, and buildings by some of the most recognized architects working today, with special attention to the productions of affect. He explores intuition in the work of Morphosis, exhilaration in Coop Himmelb(l)au, freedom in the work of Rem Koolhaas and OMA, magic in Steven Holls buildings, and anxiety in Rafael Moneos writing about contemporary architecture.
