This was <a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/124976094/patrik-schumacher-takes-to-facebook-in-defense-of-stars-and-icons" target="_blank">picked up and extensively commented on, here on Archinect</a>. I am thrilled about the lively debate that followed (in which I had participated as &lsquo;parametricist&rsquo;) and I am happy to get the opportunity to come back to this debate once more in this op-ed.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/127534748/stop-the-presses-paul-goldberger-s-take-on-critical-relevance-in-the-social-media-age Stop the presses: Paul Goldberger's take on critical relevance in the social media age Julia Ingalls 2015-05-20T11:31:00-04:00 >2015-05-29T21:08:48-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/rd/rdm51jgaus3ly64h.jpg" width="514" height="343" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>In architecture, the rise of the 21st century media landscape has created connective tissue where none used to exist: the day-to-day work of architecture used to be relatively obscure, and now it is spotlighted and deconstructed regularly. The most successful architects are not those who shun this newfound audience, but rather engage with it. Of course, this poses a challenge for architectural journalists. New work must now be evaluated not only in the context of the built environment, but in the virtual environment as well.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/100123048/screen-print-16-project-journal-s-issue-3-featuring-a-conversation-with-neil-denari Screen/Print #16: Project Journal's "Issue 3", featuring a conversation with Neil Denari Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-05-21T10:32:00-04:00 >2014-05-27T22:26:12-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/f2/f2kp8repzjsng5in.jpg" width="514" height="729" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p><a href="http://projectjournal.org/" target="_blank"><strong>Project Journal</strong></a> is a place for critical architectural discourse, with few restrictions regarding content, but an insistence on zealous, young voices. The journal aims simply to provide a platform for new, potentially dissenting ideas in architecture, but (as the name implies) was initially inspired by discussions with practicing architects about the motivations and explanations behind individual projects. For its third issue, featured here, <strong>Project Journal </strong>is now published under the Consolidated Urbanism nonprofit, its prior two issues made possible via Kickstarter.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/86470050/the-deans-list-david-gissen-of-california-college-of-the-arts The Deans List: David Gissen of California College of the Arts Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2013-11-21T13:27:00-05:00 >2013-12-09T16:02:47-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/gy/gy649aofov9830yk.jpg" width="514" height="771" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> The <strong>Deans List</strong> is an interview series with the leaders of architecture schools, worldwide. The series profiles the school&rsquo;s programming, as defined by the head honcho &ndash; giving an invaluable perspective into the institution&rsquo;s unique curriculum, faculty and academic environment.</p> <p> For our first installment, we spoke with <strong><a href="https://www.cca.edu/academics/faculty/dgissen" target="_blank">David Gissen</a></strong>, the Director of Architecture at California College of the Arts in San Francisco.</p>
