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.
