Call for Submissions

OSA Call for submissions 2020.jpg

It has been more than seven months since the World Health Organisation announced the Covid-19 pandemic. Here in the UK we are heading into a national lockdown 2.0, following many other nations around the world. The year 2020 has been unlike any other in recent history, driving our lives online. We have been removed from the studio, for the safety of us and others. The awareness of how we occupy space (physical and metaphorical) in relation to each other has been driven to the forefront of our consciousness. As a community we are scattered, yet connected to each other through our screens. Remote has become default. How will we live, work and play in the ongoing Covid reality? What can we learn as architects learn from this, and how can we adapt?

 

We are calling for submissions of articles, essays, drawings, projects, photo essays and more exploring the theme of REMOTE and our new reality. Send your submissions to us via email to osamag@gmail.com.

Deadline for submissions: 31st December 2020

Current Issue

Issue XII: REBEL

Rebellion is part of our very history, and
will always be a part of our future.
In this day and age, the world is changing
faster than ever. New movements are
constantly ebbing and flowing, and with the advent of global communication, we are connected to more people than ever thought possible. Connection, however, does not always bring cohesion. The world is both united and divided over countless questions and issues. The environment is at a tipping point. Technology is moving faster than many can keep up with. Human connection is an act of rebellion. The line between who is right and who is more convincing can be blurred beyond recognition.


In this issue, we ask: Where does the role of the architect stand in this rebellion? Is design becoming obsolete in the face of the modern world or do we need it now more than we ever have before?
