PRAXIS

PRAXIS, a journal of writing and building,  is a journal new to the LADC collection [Link to the catalog record]. PRAXIS connects both the theory and practice of architecture and focuses on issues in contemporary design [see the PRAXIS website here]. This journal is released twice a year and has been in circulation since 1999.

The current issue, number 14, is titled True Stories.  The editors are labeling it a "special" issue since they gave up most of their control over the issue and gave free reign to the contributors of PRAXIS.  The issue contains a comic titled Remember the Nelsons by Wes Jones, a story of fiction Rainy Sea by Keith Mitnick and a film titled Platform for Architecture: Makin' It...a Situation Comedy as well as other interesting stories.  Several of the authors included in this issue have books in our collection; Keith Mitnick, Julia McMorrough and Reinhold Martin [click on the author's name to go to the books we have in our collection] if you are interested in viewing other works by these contributors.

To view this journal please look for it on the current periodical shelving in the LADC.
