Young Journals Symposium
Another Pamphlet, CLOG, Pidgin
Moderated by Log editor and founder Cynthia Davidson


When it comes to small architecture publications, something is clearly in the air, as demonstrated by the relatively recent increase in architecture journals and zines worldwide. This roundtable, moderated by Log editor and founder Cynthia Davidson, will focus on young architecture journals in the NYC-area by bringing together the editors of CLOG, the editors of Another Pamphlet and a mix of founding and current editors of Pidgin to both situate each publication in a recent historical context, and to discuss the reasons for and practicalities of starting up and running architectural journals in New York today.

Copies of each publication will be on display and for sale during the reception, after the roundtable.

Sponsored by The Cooper Union School of Architecture Student Lecture Series

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Located in The Frederick P. Rose Auditorium, at 41 Cooper Square (on Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets)

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
