Considering a redefinition of global space.
This fifty-second issue of Perspecta—the oldest and most distinguished student-edited architectural journal in America—frames speculation about a possible architecture of the city in a new continuum of the political and architectural histories of style. The cohort of cross-disciplinary contemporary speculations included in this issue encompasses writers in theories of global architectural history, literary theory, political theory, and nascent urban studies. They seek, through examinations of diverse geographic and cultural case studies, largely unstudied previously, to establish the generative and projective basis for a redefinition of global public space.
