Challenges become design principles.
How can we encourage people to think about architecture? How to start a conversation that addresses the sustainable and democratising potential of architecture?
Since the student movement in 1968, the magazine Arch+ has published quarterly content that shapes the discourse on architecture and urbanism. At the same time, the magazine considers and examines architecture as a sort of archive of social and cultural values.
In each issue, the editorial team led by architecture theorist Anh-Linh Ngo focuses on a specific topic. The focus here is on the many social, ecological and creative challenges facing architecture. Since 2022, we have been in charge of the art direction and the plan to continuously develop the magazine. Our role in design is to mark the trendsetting content as such and make it accessible so that it gets the attention it deserves.
‘We develop visual principles from the respective themes that are reflected in the design of the magazine,’ says André van Rueth, designer at Stan Hema. By the way, the ARCH+ editorial office is just two streets away from Stan Hema. We’re in conversation.
