On Friday, May 12, 2017, “Paper/Architecture” discussed six publishing initiatives and their relationship to architecture. In a panel discussion with those leading these initiatives, we learned first-hand about the different publishing models and their areas of interest. Each of them, taking a different approach, plays an important role in shaping and contributing new perspectives to the field of architecture and beyond.


Participants included:

Alissa Anderson (Publications Director, Studio Gang)

Iker Gil (Editor in chief, MAS Context)

David Hays (Editor, Forty-Five)

Ann Lui (Editor, Prescriptions)

Matthew Messner (Midwest Editor, Architect’s Newspaper)

Mimi Zeiger (Critic, editor, curator)

Moderated by
Julie Michiels (Associate Principal, Perkins+Will)


The event was held at Perkins+Will Chicago located on the 16th floor of the Wrigley Building (410 North Michigan Avenue, Suite 1600, Chicago, IL 60611).
