VOLUME 40: DEVICES

“Devices are not merely utilitarian, but can operate on physical or figurative levels, producing new meanings through their machinations and calibrations. The device is imbued with intent; it is a force vector, an unstoppable generative power. As instruments of both physical and cultural perception, what do they enable us to see, optically or mentally?”

ABOUT // The Site Magazine

The Site Magazine is an independent journal that addresses diverse issues pertaining to our built environment. Through a range of writing types, design projects, and visual formats, each issue advocates for a critical consideration of the layered relations of our built environment posed from varied perspectives, including the cultural, political, formal, social, and ecological.

Founded in 2015, The Site Magazine is a collaborative, dynamic project driven by a shared commitment and passion for fostering debate as a way of progressing community and practice.

We are particularly interested in offering an interdisciplinary platform to explore the agency of designers and aligned professionals in bringing change, advocacy, and engagement beyond the limits of art and design. We encourage debates that engage the politics, cultural relevance, and social implications of the work that we do, and that confront issues of equality and representation.

We publish thematic issues twice a year. Each issue has both a print and digital form, allowing for a range expressive formats and a nuanced dialogue across both outlets. Along with The Site Magazine, we host public events—including roundtable discussions, exhibitions, and talks—to expand the discussions of each issue to a broader audience. Issues are grouped within series that are defined by a broader perspective.

Series 1, containing volumes 35–40, explores a range of scales and frameworks for understanding our built environment through the themes of Borders, Vernaculars, Future Legacies, Feminisms, Foundations/Disruptions, and Devices. This series continues the enumeration of On Site Review, making The Site Magazine the latest iteration of Canada’s longest running, independent journal for architecture and urbanism.
