architecture and politics

Influenced by the innumerable complexities of the environment it inhabits, architecture is innately reactive, defensive, and political. While design is a product of its creator, designers are a product of society (sub)consciously projecting experience in to the work they create. What does this cyclical process mean for us as designers? What does this mean for us as citizens? How does our work operate politically?

In contrast to our last issue's theme of humor and whimsical sophistication, we are calling for more serious matters in the thirteenth issue of One:Twelve. This open call for submissions welcomes all disciplines to contribute a written or graphic piece to the journal. Any viewpoint/approach will be considered as long as it specifically addresses the prompt.
