Archizines in ShanghaiClose

The critically acclaimed touring exhibition Archizines was on show in Shanghai at the University of Hong Kong / Shanghai Study Centre from January to March 2014.

Archizines celebrates the resurgence of alternative and independent architectural publishing around the world. The touring exhibition, curated by Elias Redstone and initiated in collaboration with the Architectural Association, now features 100 architecture magazines, fanzines and journals from over twenty countries that provide an alternative to the established architectural press. Edited by architects, artists and students, these publications provide new platforms for commentary, criticism and research into the spaces we inhabit and the practice of architecture. They make an important and often radical addition to architectural discourse and demonstrate a residual love for print matter in the digital age.

The exhibition features titles from the collection alongside video interviews with their creators in a bespoke display. Each publication has selected one issue to represent their approach to publishing and they are all available for visitors to read, bringing together publications from countries as far afield as Australia and Argentina, the UK and USA. The original Archizines collection will be transferred to the National art Library at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.

For the show MORE made the lay out concept and exhibition design, displaying the 100 magazines by size, from small to extra large.
