Log 38 (Hardcover)
After two successive thematic issues, Log 38 (Fall 2016) returns to its classic open form, bringing together myriad perspectives from architecture s center and periphery. Cynthia Davidson s expansive interview with New York architect Harry Cobb, of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, illuminates Cobb s 60-plus years in practice, as well as the history of modernism in America. Eve Blau explores the contexts that drove the 1968 Learning from Las Vegas studio at Yale, and Pier Vittorio Aureli and Maria Shéhérazade Giudici reevaluate the archaeological roots of modern domestic space. Log 38 also features critical perspectives on the current moment in architecture, with reviews of OMA s Fondaco dei Tedeschi, reflections on this year s Venice Architecture Biennale, and reactions to Brexit from architects and educators affected by the vote, and even includes an imaginative look at the work of Sam Jacob Studio from 20 years in the future.
