The newly released Log 24: Architecture Criticism journal includes an essay by SCI-Arc Cultural Studies Coordinator Todd Gannon. "Of Raspberries, Rawhide, and Rhetoric" deconstructs Jason Payne's "Rawhide: The New Shingle Style" exhibition, a site-specific installation designed for the SCI-Arc Gallery in summer 2011. Payne, who heads Los Angeles based Hirsuta, is a SCI-Arc alumnus.
The current Winter/Spring issue of Log also includes essays by Jeff Kipnis, Anthony Vidler, Charles Jencks, Craig Buckley, Sylvia Lavin, and Daniel Sherer, as well as other contributions from Rome, Athens, Ningbo, London, New York, and Los Angeles. Click here to read more.
