“Looking Inward" - Conversation on the launch of Manifest: A Journal of American Architecture and Urbanism, Issue No. 1
Manifest was founded as a means to initiate a critical conversation about the state of American architecture, its cities, and its hinterland. While it questions the assumptions behind singular notions/constructions of America by tracing its origins and its global influence, Manifestalso aims to define the uniqueness of American forms of city-building and the distinct set of political parameters through which these forms are shaped. “Looking inward,” is here offered as an interrogation of a “New World” taken for granted. Rather than abandoning this new world for a newer world elsewhere or circling the wagons here at home, this issue of Manifest speaks less to a continual rehearsal of the initial American experiment in favor of a prompt toward the active shaping of its evolution.
