Conditions Issue 10: “Gossip”

Conditions: The Independent Magazine on Architecture and Urbanism is a witty and beautifully designed publication that chooses a singular topic for each issue. Its current issue, number ten, is an in-depth, often-hilarious study of the function of gossip in architecture. The way gossip works is a prescient topic in any discipline -- and particularly so for architecture at this time of year with the Venice Architecture Biennale fast approaching. Conditions does its usual bang-up job, this time diving headlong into the topics of rumormongering, networking, trash-talking, and beyond...a juicy read for all.
