Santiago has had the chance for this first landing. The local version of the project became real due to the remarkable work of Fernando Portal, Pablo Brugnoli and Andrea Lathrop, whom gave shape to the Chilean participation on the architectural radical magazines of the 60&rsquo;s and 70&rsquo;s.</p> <p> The selected local magazines were proposed according to the main outline: &ldquo;radical architecture of little magazines&rdquo;.

Rather than our current model of print-on-demand or lower-resolution PDF download, we seek to do a print run of 1,000 issues through this <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Kickstarter campaign</a>. Working with a local print house will allow us more freedom to bring our vision to life, to sell SOILED at lower costs, and to distribute issues through independent bookstores, cultural institutions, and communal spaces across Chicago, the US, and beyond.</p> <p> Get dirty with us in 2013!
