AA Files 79
AA Files is the Architectural Association's (AA) journal of record. Launched in 1981 by the AA's then chairman Alvin Boyarsky, the journal appears twice a year and is sent out to members of the Architectural Association and individual subscribers, and is distributed to a global network of bookshops. Currently under the editorship of Maria Shéhérazade Giudici, AA Files looks to promote original and engaging writing on architecture. It does this by drawing both on the AA’s own academic research, public programme, exhibitions and events, as well as by a rich and eclectic mix of architectural scholarship from all over the world. With Contributions of Pier Vittorio Aureli, Brendon Carlin, Jingru (Cyan) Cheng, Thomas Daniell, Adam Kaasa, Marson Korbi, Michelle Millar Fisher, Gabrielle Printz, Ines Weizman, Amber Winick

The forthcoming issue of AA Files examines a range of building typologies and histories from Pyongyang to Lusaka and beyond – its geographic remit is broader than any previous issue. It also features articles looking at some of the wider contexts informing architectural practice, including timelines of ecological rupture, ways of measuring the human body, and the emergence of privatised public space. Contributors include Thandi Loewenson, Calvin Chua, Christina Varvia, Elisa Iturbe, Manijeh Verghese and Madeleine Kessler among others.
