P.E.A.R.: Paper for Emerging Architectural Research relaunches with an issue looking at the theme of the local and the global.
Contributors: Max Wisotsky, Ana Monrabal-Cook & Cameron Overy, Stephen Graham, Matthew Turner, Heidi Svenningsen Kajita, Alejandro Haiek Coll, Unknown Fields, Maj Plemenitas, Shahed Saleem and John Jordan
Contributions focus on the exploration of issues that affect architectural production and discourse that are manifest in specific geographical locations but are also caused by, or exist as, responses to interconnected global conditions.
Central to this issue of P.E.A.R. are questions about how architecture can seek to engage with, negate and even enhance circumstances – whether economic, social, aesthetic or political – that exist in specific urban and rural locations, but are driven by dynamic and complex forces at national and international scales. These forces include the ongoing development of globalization driven by capital, the increasingly dramatic effects of climate change, and the enduring contemporary preoccupations that focus intellectual and natural resources on technological and scientific development. The issue explores how architecture, manifested as spatial, temporal, material and programmatic conditions, can operate critically within complex social, ecological, political and cultural systems.
Contributors operate between the artistic, scientific and professional fields of spatial knowledge, with an emphasis on exploratory and experimental work based on broad interdisciplinary perspectives. Alongside contributions from architectural practitioners, theorists and historians, the issue features work from geographers and political activists.
