“CLOG slows things down. Each issue explores, from multiple viewpoints and through a variety of means, a single subject particularly relevant to architecture now. Succinctly, on paper, away from the distractions and imperatives of the screen.”
We are excited to carry CLOG for just those reasons. We love the fact that it presents opinions and viewpoints across the board and lets the reader think and decide. Plus, they are beautifully designed put together and and nothing beats the smell of a freshly printed publication. Shop CLOG here.
What we also enjoyed seeing in the CLOG issues are the number of contributors it has attracted worldwide. It was no wonder to us that the minds behind PlayLab play a part in such an undertaking.
Printing a magazine instead of digital publishing has taken on the same lunacy of using a film camera over digital camera. But CLOG has embraced this as an advantage, as an opportunity to hold our attention and share. So we encourage you, to slow down, pick up a CLOG, absorb and enjoy. (We love film and magazines by the way)
“Online press, blogs, tweets, social media, and other digital forums have drastically increased the speed at which architectural imagery is distributed and consumed today. While an unprecedented amount of work is available to the public, the lifespan of any single design or topic has been reduced in the profession’s collective consciousness to a week, an afternoon, a single post-an endlessly changing architecture du jour. In the deluge, excellent projects receive the same fleeting attention as mediocre ones. Meanwhile, mere exposure has taken the place of thoughtful engagement, not to mention a substantive discussion.”
