Above all, another pamphlet is a conversation, a loose exchange of forms and ideas, an excuse to play, a frame through which to look, a shared excitement. It is an open dialogue with our friends, our histories, and our surroundings.
Meaning both "more of the same" and "something different", "another" contains the seeds of both continuity and change. Another pamphlet mines this contradiction - this tension between past and future - opportunistically interrogating, critiquing, and celebrating the discipline of architecture.
The game is simple. One pamphlet, multiple voices, infinite directions.
It is deliberately short (each submission is limited to 300 words and one image). We're all busy and we want to keep the conversation quick, easy, relevant, and fresh.
It is perversely anachronistic. It will be printed on paper and distributed via - gasp - the post. Against the haze of digital distraction, we crave an object to hold our attention - something to touch, to fold, to tuck in our back pocket, to discard.
And, most importantly, it is a group effort. Distinct voices are provisionally brought together into a contingent collective. But while the contributors and the ideas they offer are vital, particular authorship is obscured. The authors are given credit for participating, but the ideas stand on their own. The collective dialogue is given primacy over the individual position.
