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.

When the Board of Trustees met on June 21, 2013, they designated four large departments as schools, including one within the College of Architecture, Design, & Construction. The Department of Industrial and Graphic Design (DIGD) exceeded the university's criteria for school status, which were based on degrees offered, enrollment, faculty, student credit hours and prominence within their fields. DIGD will now be known as the School of Industrial and Graphic Design!

The reclassification as a school indicates the former departments' level of achievement with a suitable title, and this new identity will allow these schools to compete even more effectively with programs of similar size at peer institutions.

Congratulations on this recognition, School of Industrial and Graphic Design!
