VOLUME is an innovative magazine that goes beyond architectures definition of making buildings. Instead, it reaches out for global views on architecture in the context of the broader issues of social structures and creating environments to live in. VOLUME is a dynamic experimental think tank devoted to the process of spatial and cultural reflexivity. Its aim is to break open traditional discourses on architecture, allowing for new dialogues about innovative architectural practice.

Volume is published by the Archis Foundation, Amsterdam
