In an effort to foster a healthy and critical debate on the state of architectural media today, we upped the ante from the Volume discussion and invited the editors of Verb to join in a similar conversation. Our interest lay within Verb's approach, the "boogazine," which by their definition straddles the realms of both boo(k) and (ma)gazine, respectively. This unique position stands in stark contrast to those of other purveyors of architectural content media, and, in a way reveals through its breadth the territory of contemporary architectural practice.
In this installment we introduce the editors of Verb, Albert Ferré and Michael Kubo, in a process that utilizes Archinect's unique discussion platform in engaging not only Archinect editor's John Jourden and Mason White, but also the incredibly diverse and eclectic community of Archinect. Now with that said we must stress that the participants from Verb are under no obligation to continue the conversation. We hope that the discussion will not hinge on this possibility, but will rather be fomented by the desire to discuss the merits and conditions of architectural media today.
