PLATFORM , a digital forum for conversations about buildings, spaces, and landscapes, created and edited by History of Art & Architecture Professor Swati Chattopadhyay and her colleagues Marta Gutman, Zeynep Kezer, and Matthew Lasner.
PLATFORM is a new open digital venue for exchanging ideas about working with, researching, teaching, and writing about buildings, spaces, and landscapes.
PLATFORM publishes timely short-form essays and digital content that engage with contemporary culture and politics. It is not a journal, it is a not a book, there is no print version. It is a moderated platform for speaking to diverse audiences, for thinking critically, and for taking a stand.
PLATFORM is broad in perspective and interdisciplinary in orientation. We invite contributors from the Global North and South and from across professions and disciplines. We are not a closed or finite group. Unsolicited work is welcome. You do not need to have gone to school with the editors, be an architect, an architectural historian, or an academic to join the conversation. We value the diversity of opinions about how we view, read, experience, and engage with the built landscape.
