PLATFORM is the annual magazine of The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture. It serves as a platform for the school to investigate the intersections of its research, practice, and pedagogical approaches with a broader audience.
Each issue of PLATFORM features articles of topical interest in the disciplines of architecture, architectural history, community and regional planning, historic preservation, interior design, landscape architecture, sustainable design, and urban design.
Editors selected from the school’s faculty develop a new theme or prompt for the publication each year and drive its conceptual direction.
