The University of Pennsylvania School of Design hosted the editorial board of the Journal of Architectural Education this weekend. New executive editor Marc Neveu and the editorial board reviewed more than 40 proposals for themes of future issues. Writers from around the world responded to the call to shape the scholarly future of the discipline. The results will be forthcoming this fall.
JAE's new issue (Volume 67, issue 2) is also now online, fully loaded with scholarly articles that cross the discipline as well as major new design initiatives.
Check out the new Design Frameworks, intended to help designers working in all forms of disciplinary creative practice frame their work for publication. Also debuting in the issue is a column called Pre-fabrications, which is intended to catalyze new forms of critical discussion about the material culture of architecture.
The University of Calgary's Graham Livesey served as interim executive editor for the issue and worked with Design Editor Amy Kulper, University of Michigan, and Reviews Editor Michelangelo Sabatino, University of Houston.
