The magazine An Architektur tackles the raisons d'être and effects of buildings. Each topical issue features particular political and social aspects of architecture and the city under current capitalist conditions. AnArchitektur considers the built environment to be determined by fundamental concepts inherent in society which frame and affect our lives. An Architektur advocates a progressive, critical notion of architecture. Architectural practice should include a concern with discourse on space and its use beyond planning and construction, as this is where social conceptions are being negotiated. AnArchitektur engages in the critical analysis of spatial relations as a form of political activism to reveal any underlying political order. The approach of An Architektur is interventionist. By analysing specific architectural situations and unveiling previously disonnected topical aspects, each issue of AnArchitektur attempts to re-examine the terms of spatial arangements and find new definitions. AnArchitektur is looking for new options and alternatives. Increasing social tensions, cultural capitalization, ethnic segregation, ubiquitous surveillance, and the privatization of public space within the context of urban re-development strategies dictated by neo-liberal economic thinking demand a new critical approach in spatial practice. AnArchitektur is published bi-annually. The editorial board are former members and collaborators of architecture collective "freies fach", a loose grouping of individuals with a common interest in specific topics, and open to outside ideas and suggestions.
