REVIEW ARCHITECTURE is an online journal of architecture books updated weekly
editor: Ayax Abreu Garcia
REVIEW ARCHITECTURE is an online journal dedicated first and foremost to cogent and lucid reviews of architectural texts, it is also a place for discussion and argumentation in favor for the propagation of novel architectural ideas brought to light in printed media. The reviews presented in Review Architecture are primarily from books that are closely related to the 'digital paradigm', a revolutionary period at the turn of the century that transformed architecture's tools of production, representation and signification.
REVIEW ARCHITECTURE is about ideas and the intellectualization of the architectural process.
REVIEW ARCHITECTURE aims reside at activating architectural discourse through short reviews and written meditations. REVIEW ARCHITECTURE makes dense texts accesible through exciting reviews, always aiming at inspiring interested individuals to take up the habit of the intellectual pursuit of knowledge and higher levels of reflection, which ultimately benefit architecture's discourse and modes of documenting our contribution to the world at large (books, texts, manifestos, publications). REVIEW ARCHITECTURE was born not only out of the love, passion and respect for the precision of the reviewed texts but also from forming an opposition against the prevalence of imagery in today's main mediums of architecture diffusion. REVIEW ARCHITECTURE is a website where people can acess knowledge and become interested in books but it is also an abstract ideal that plays homage to the massive work of scholarship that certain authors undergo and that are largely underpaid by a society that does not value writers and publishers enough. Its future aims reside at having guest editors that could form a global network of thinkers and intellects interested in architectural theory.
