Lapham's Quarterly and Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation

Lewis H. Lapham, Founder and Editor

Published four times a year, each issue of Lapham’s Quarterly adopts and explores a single theme, such as War, Money, Nature, and Education, each created with an aim to help readers find historical threads from Homer to Queen Elizabeth I to George Patton, from Aesop to Edith Wharton to Joan Didion. New essays from writers such as Stanley Fish, Salman Rushdie, and Francine Prose then knot each theme together. The current fall issue explores urban pasts and futures through the theme of The City.

Mark Wigley, Dean

The Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at Columbia University in New York City, also known simply as GSAPP, is regarded as one of the most important and prestigious architecture schools in the world. The school confers Masters Degrees in Architecture, Advanced Architectural Design, Architecture and Urban Design, Urban Planning, Historic Preservation, Real Estate Development, and Critical, Curatorial, and Conceptual Practices in Architecture as well as a Doctoral Degree in Architecture. All programs share a commitment to both professional training and research. The curriculum and philosophy stress the necessity of analyzing and challenging the underlying history, premises, and future directions of the design professions, even as students are prepared to become accomplished practitioners in their respective fields of specialization.

Malwina Łyś-Dobradin, Director of Global Network Programming

Studio-X is GSAPP’s global network of advanced research laboratories for exploring the future of cities. With locations in New York, Beijing, Amman, Mumbai, Rio de Janeiro, and Moscow, it is a new platform for incubating conversation about the future of the built environment – intense collaborative workshop by day, energizing event space by night.

Jeffrey Inaba, Director

The mission of C-LAB is to test experimental forms of architectural communication. Rethinking architecture at a global scale, the lab sets up creative partnerships to broaden the range and increase the intensity of architectural discourse – launching unique events, provisional networks, special issues of magazines, video streams, radio and webcasts. The lab acts as a kind of training camp and energy source for incubating new channels for debate about architecture. Together with Archis and AMO, C-Lab produces Volume, an independent architecture quarterly whose recent issues cover American ‘60s Counterculture, Storytelling, the Moon, and the Arabian Gulf.
