ARCHI ZINES is a showcase of new fanzines, journals and magazines from around the world that provide an alternative discourse to the established architectural press. Launched by Elias Redstone, the project celebrates and promotes publishing as an arena for architectural commentary, criticism and research, and as a creative platform for new photography, illustration and design.
The commonality is a shared interest in documenting and discussing the spaces we occupy in ways that more mainstream or professional publications do not.
The first stage of the project is this online archive. From this collection, publications will be selected to participate in exhibitions and events. A facebook page provides a forum for publications to network and share information.
Elias Redstone, architecture curator and writer, recently curated the Polish Pavilion: Venice Architecture Biennale 2010.
