Log 35 offers cutting-edge architectural thought, both historical and speculative, for our hyperconnected world. The 21 contributors to this Fall 2015 issue offer new thinking from across and beyond the discipline of architecture, from investigations of architecture’s encounters with politics, economics, and art to focused investigations of individual architects and studios, including Sou Fujimoto, Dogma, and Takefumi Aida. Log 35 also includes a 32-page excerpt from Benjamin H. Bratton’s forthcoming book The Stack, which explores the consequences and possibilities of planetary-scale computation and the new geopolitical architecture it represents, plus a review of the book by Jeffrey Kipnis.
