WHO ARE WE
OSA MAGAZINE is a student-led magazine based at Oxford Brookes University. We aim to provoke conversations that surround relevant topics for architecture today through both visual and written materials.
Thanks to our Sponsors, we have come to grow each year and develop a stronger body of work collaboratively with Architecture Students from various schools.
The Oxford School of Architecture at Oxford Brookes is one of the largest schools of Architecture in the country, with over six hundred students from undergraduate through to PhD candidates and beyond. The size of the school means we have a huge variety of agendas being pursued by students, from our humanitarian programmes in Development & Emergency Practice, through to formal and representational investigations found in Advanced Architectural Design. To find out more about Architecture at Oxford Brookes University, head over to the School of Architecture page.
As students with different interests, we started this magazine in order to give our peers a platform on which they could publish their work and encourage the cross-pollination of ideas.
We publish two issues a year: the first surrounds a topic or theme that’s relevant to the state of the art, the second includes an open-content narrative and a selection of the most competitive projects produced within that year.
Our print editions are printed at a local business in Oxford that specialises in producing RISO prints, an eco-friendly alternative to digital printing which gives our magazine its unique look and feel.
