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 intersection of its research, practice, and pedagogical interests with a broader audience.
Each issue of PLATFORM features thought-provoking 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.
This issue, titled Complexity | Scale | Power, is edited by Alex Karner, Katherine Lieberknecht, and Elizabeth J. Mueller and focuses on new approaches to planning in the context of rapid growth and urbanization. It represents a dynamic collection of expert voices and viewpoints brought together by the need to advance accessibility, sustainability, and resilience.
