Praxis: a journal of writing and building is a nonprofit journal published twice yearly by an all-volunteer staff*. Each issue contains articles relating to a common theme (i.e. a current design problem or topic). Praxis delves into its topics by addressing both theory & practice, and making connections in order to present an integrated view of architecture for academics and professionals; it attempts to "bridge the gap" between theory & practice.

*One of the editors, Benjamin Gilmartin, spoke at the APLA Fall Lecture series in August 2012.
