OUT LOUD JOURNAL
DEATH + ARCHITECTURE is the first of many investigations on topics stemming from the open ideas competitions that established arch out loud. Our goal is to approach each issue from all angles, with architecture, at times, participating as an association hovering in the back of our minds and at others, plastered on the front cover without shame. In our research and curation, we are asking ourselves: How do we create an intersection between architecture, art, history, and technology? How do we create a useful dialogue across our discipline, including students, academics, and professionals? How do we use the connection between speculative design and research to add depth to our discussions?
The result is a projective sourcebook for the exchange of design ideas. We are cultivating transdisciplinary architecture. In this pursuit, we are consulting architects, philosophers, engineers, designers, scientists, professors and students alike to participate in the conversation. This is the out loud journal.
