Keep reading for our manifesto for Issue XII: REBEL, we look forward to hearing from you!

Rebelling against the status quo has always been an integral part of human progress. It is the reason we have rights and opportunities that our ancestors may not have had access to. Rebellion is part of our very history, and will always be a part of our future. Simply to exist is rebellion.

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.

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?

Submit your article or visual interpretation to osazine@gmail.com.

Join the Rebellion.

Abstract Deadline: 21/10/2019
