AD: Essays for Courses
The issue of AD Territory that has just been published contains many provocative projects, photographs and drawings; but one of the best things about this issue are the essays – the writing. As this issue was taking shape, the editor of AD wrote me, stating that this issue contains some of the best writing that the staff has seen in any AD.
I put the issue together specifically with university courses in mind (as was the case with Subnature, as well). That is, many of the essays in this issue engage the types of debates within courses on contemporary architectural theory, “ecological” architecture and urbanism, history of cities, and urban design. Many of the essays in AD are mandatory additions to the syllabi of the types of courses mentioned above.
If you’re a teacher or student of the above, go grab a copy as you’re preparing your fall reading lists.
