Interested in becoming a pen pal?

With every new edition of Bnieuws, we ask our readers for contributions. In the past, we've done this by maintaining a mailing list of 'pen pals', whom we contact when we are starting a new edition. We will continue to do this, but the call for contributions for every new edition will also be shown below on this page. We leave the choice to you: if you'd like to be emailed when we are starting a new edition, sign up below, otherwise, you can find the theme for the upcoming edition below!

Our world is constantly breaking down, from our phones to our bikes, the buildings we live in, and the ecosystems that make up the planet. We are constantly engaged in putting things back in order. Almost ten years ago, media scholar Steven Jackson asked, “What happens when we take erosion, breakdown, and decay, rather than novelty, growth, and progress, as our starting points”? This provocation has changed our outlook on the world and how we act upon it, demanding that we pay closer attention to the impact of our actions and that we bring maintenance and repair to the forefront. How does it change our approach to design, architectural education, and the way we live?
