Architektur in Gebrauch

AG (Architektur in Gebrauch) is a journal for architecture in use. Each issue documents one building or one built structure in its current state, considering its transformation while looking back at the moment when it was built. The term “use” (Gebrauch) constitutes, in this case, the driving force behind the development of every built structure.

AG is a journal for the practice of architecture. Instead of another contribution to a history of architecture – repeating itself as an endless series of new buildings, in which photographs capturing the moment of completion become the only instance of authenticity and the most influential moment – AG deliberately works counter to that: observing from the point of view of the now, history becomes a simultaneous present. In focussing on the present, which is also to focus on the value of use, AG intends to assert the production conditions of architecture as the central discourse on the built environment.

Berliner Hefte zu Geschichte und Gegenwart der Stadt

Unter dem Druck des Ereignishaften entstehen blinde Flecken, alternative Sichtweisen und Erzählungen bleiben verborgen, Texte und Bilder unveröffentlicht, das Verschwinden von Orten undokumentiert.

Die Berliner Hefte zu Geschichte und Gegenwart der Stadt sind eine fortlaufende Reihe kleiner Publikationen, die künstlerische, essayistische und aktivistische Praxen miteinander verbinden. Die Hefte thematisieren die sozialen, kulturellen und ökonomischen Veränderungen in Berlin und anderen Städten, und greifen in die stadtpolitischen Debatten sowohl historisch reflektierend wie aktuell informierend ein. Die Berliner Hefte verstehen sich als ein Produktionszusammenhang, der unterschiedlichen Autorinnen und Herausgeberinnen offensteht und das analoge und digitale Publizieren in Veranstaltungs- und Ausstellungsformate einbezieht.

Valeria Fahrenkrog, Joerg Franzbecker, Erik Goengrich, Heimo Lattner, Ines Schaber, Florian Wüst

Faktur

FAKTUR is a journal that celebrates research as the source of architectural imagination. FAKTUR—the German term for a dynamic concept and a set of techniques that influenced the Russian avant-garde of the early twentieth century—identifies both a subjective medium and a technical, productive, and social construct, documented as visual traces in the final work of art.

FAKTUR responds to the concerns of an emerging generation of architects and aims to bridge the distance between practice and academic scholarship. FAKTUR offers an intellectual platform for scholars and designers to publish their research in the form of papers, together with the projects, buildings, exhibitions, photographs, etc., associated with or resulting from these investigations. The journal is interested in different methods for presenting and discussing projects of architecture that consider journalistic research, both academic and non-academic, as fundamental to the cultural construction of aesthetic identities.
