ISSUE 25 on APRIL 25
A gathering of current and past contributors, editors, designers, and instigators.
Thursday, April 25th, 6:00pm
South Gallery, School of Architecture
Please join us for this salon-style celebratory event as previous Pidgin editors engage in conversation with current Pidgin editors on the development and production of this unique student-led publication. Discussion topics circumvent the status of publications in architecture schools today and the role of editors in cultural production. There will be copies of Pidgin 25 (hot off the press!), Prosecco, and Pidgin Cake!
Pidgin is a publication edited and designed by graduate students at the Princeton University School of Architecture. The name Pidgin encapsulates the spirit of the journal: a type of communication formed by a lack of common language, and a homonym for a low-tech, feathered dispatch. From its inception in 2005, Pidgin has provided a platform for the written and visual detritus of students, faculty, practitioners, historians, and theorists at Princeton and beyond, emphasizing current critical work across formats rather than polished products. By assembling a range of contributors and work, each issue creates an eclectic compilation of contemporary thought in architecture and its related disciplines.
Participants include past Pidgin editors:
Ivi Diamantopoulou (M.Arch ’12), Principal, New Affiliates
Gabriel Fries-Briggs (M.Arch ’13), Creator, Reimaging and 2426; Lecturer, UCLA Architecture and Urban Design
