We're excited to announce the release of the first issue in the Archinect Zine! This is a collaboration between Archinect and our friend Christian Chaudhari's publishing initiative Friction House.
Creator and producer of the Archinect Zine is Christian Chaudhari, LA-based architect, writer, cultural observer. "Strategically place it anywhere in your house... Impress the mailman, get the chicks (or dudes), stump your professor, or that smart ass friend of yours. The benefits other than knowledge are endless!", he tongue-in-cheek lists some of the Zine's benefits.
Christian continues to explain what you can expect in the Zine premiere AI WEIWEI issue:
"The most absurd bits of Chinese culture, art news and dissident activism directly or remotely related to Ai Weiwei (crazy awesome Chinese artist who got in a hella lot of trouble with China, in case you live under a rock) printed in this ultra compact, super graphic, mega-bitchin magazine. A collaboration between the awesome clearinghouse of architecture related content, Archinect.com and the new hacker-punk, in-yo-face, i-don't-care-what-you-think stylings of Friction House Publishing."
