What the hell happened to architectural media?

Fueled by click-bait and tabloid-style reporting, the media is only concerned with how many likes, retweets and followers it can garner. Monographs, magazines and architectural websites have simply become extensions practitioners websites—promoting Starchitecture and corporate agendas. Where are the critical inquiries, investigative reporting and original contributions? Click here to unsubscribe.

More about Turncoats:

"Vancouver's Architectural debates are rubbish.
We've all been there: a panel of similar designers with similar views taking it in turns to talk at length about their similar work - too polite, too deferential, too dull. At best they are lukewarm love-ins, critically impotent, elitist and stuffy. Turncoats is a shot in the arm. Framed by theatrically provocative opening gambits, a series of debates will rugby tackle fundamental issues facing contemporary practice with a playful and combative format designed to foment open and critical discussion, turning conventional consensus on its head."

The organizers acknowledge that the area called Vancouver is within the unceded Indigenous territories belonging to the Musqueam, Skxwú7mesh-ulh Úxwumixw (Squamish) and Tsleil-Waututh peoples. The organizers recognize the colony of British Columbia was created through organized dispossession and colonial violence. With this history as our shared context, the organizers intend to conduct their work with Indigenous people to end ongoing violence, dispossession and displacement.
