The Architectural Review #1504
230 x 280 mm, 114 pages
Editor: Manon Mollard
Art director: Tom Carpenter
Founded in 1896, the AR has a proud tradition of challenge and criticism, scouring the globe for architecture that provokes and inspires, and relying on its immense archive and critically acclaimed writers to shape architectural discourse. Combine this with a rich history of contemporary editorial design and you have a magazine of interest beyond its natural architectural audience.
For September 2023, AR investigates ownership and property, particularly as socially constructed concepts. From its historic roots in John Locke and colonialism to present day conflicts in indigenous territories in the Amazon and gentrification in cities like London and Los Angeles, this issue attempts to unravel the ‘seemingly unshakeable concept of private property.’
