The third issue of Archinect’s print publication Ed features a diverse range of contributions by significant architectural thinkers and practitioners that tackle questions surrounding the norms of the discipline and its normative functions. The issue aims to denormalize and denaturalize what we take for givens in the discipline and profession: primarily, its institutionalized social and labor relations, and their misogynistic, racist, corrupt, and oppressive character. At the same time, it looks at the ways in which architecture presumes—and, in turn, produces—a normative subject with a normative body. And it imagines alternatives through a series of contemporary case studies.
