Journal of Civic Architecture
The Journal of Civic Architecture includes essays, visual essays, drawings and design projects that relate architecture, photography, literature and criticism to city life. Each issue is edited by Patrick Lynch, sometimes alongside a guest editor, and addresses a series of unpredictable themes concerning urban culture and imagination.
Contributors to the first edition include Tom de Paor, Johan Celsing, Joseph Rykwert, Laura Evans, Luisa Collina, Cino Zucchi, Indra Kagis McEwen, Andrew Crompton, Michael Badu, Geraldine Clarkson and Simon Walker. Each issue is edited by Patrick Lynch, sometimes alongside a guest editor, and addresses a series of unpredictable themes concerning urban culture and imagination.
Contributions are invited for the forthcoming issues from photographers, writers and designers who wish to engage in a fruitful dialogue with other creative people about the meaning, frustrations and pleasures of civic culture today. Academics are encouraged to send things that perhaps wouldn’t otherwise find an audience.
Issue 2 addresses the topic of landscape and will include contributions from the artists Emma McNally and Rut Blees-Luxemburg, an essay and photography by David Grandorge, Dow Jones architects’ on their Garden Museum, an interview with the architect and academic John Meunier, etc. Issue 2 will be published on The Winter Solstice 2018. Issue 3 comes out 21st June 2019 and will be concerned with the question of work. Please contact us if you’ve design projects, writing, or images that you’d like us to consider for publication.
