PLAT is a journal produced by students at the Rice School of Architecture.
We are accepting submissions (projects, photographs, drawings, prints, media projects, essays) for our forthcoming 1.0 issue.
The qualities of the impostor can be traced through the notions of mirroring, imposing, and masquerading seen throughout the exploits of architecture. Double figuration, misalignments, cases of mistaken identity, and questions of legibility can lead to counterfeit architectures and false promises. But where there is a ‘fake,’ there is always something ‘real’ underneath two for the price of one. What new potentials are generated by this doubling? In PLAT 1.0, we invite you to re-frame architecture (and other ventures) as an IMPOSTOR.
Submit abstracts [see http://www.platjournal.com for submission guidelines] to firstname.lastname@example.org by 6/4/2010 for consideration.
