Spring/Summer 2016

Log 37: cataLog (Spring/Summer 2016) takes readers inside “The Architectural Imagination,” the exhibition curated by Log editor Cynthia Davidson and architect Mónica Ponce de León for the United States Pavilion at the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale. This special 240-page color issue of Log features 12 new speculative projects designed for four sites in Detroit by visionary American architectural teams. The cataLog also presents writing by the curators, an interview with Detroit planning director Maurice Cox, and essays exploring Detroit’s past and present, as well as the role of imagination in architecture, by critics, theorists, and historians.
