[bracket] is an annual publication documenting issues overlooked yet central to our cultural milieu that have evolved out of the new disciplinary territory at the intersection of architecture, landscape, urbanism and, now, the Internet. It is no coincidence that the professional term “architect” can also now refer to information architects, and that the word “community” can also now refer to an online community.
[bracket] is a publishing platform for ideas charting the complex overlap of the sphere of architecture and online social spheres.
Seeking new voices and talent, [bracket] is structured around an open call for entries. The series will look at thematics in our age of globalization that are shaping the built environment in radically significant and yet unexpected ways.
The first issue, entitled On Farming, has just opened its call for entries from which select projects and texts will be published in Fall 2009.
