A new magazine is putting out its first issue in May of 2009. Going to the home page of Conditions Magazine was a refreshing and delightful journey.

The group was on my Facebook page and already has some 400 plus members or followers on Facebook. The magazine is being designed and written by Norwegian and Swedish Architects. It is very innovative and bold.

Here is a copy of their manifesto:

In opposition to ignorance and superficiality this magazine is conceived in order to search for knowledge and predicaments of our continuously evolving society. It is organized in a fluctuating network of agents reflecting the present globalized state of a dynamic society, economics, politics and culture which are the motivators of architecture. Through a play of thoughts in an open ended forum, predefined “facts” will be unsecured and constantly reinvented. The forum will gather the architect, client, politician and the public, a communion of ideas creating conditions for evolution.

One of the folks I follow on Twitter and Facebook is Cameron Sinclair, ( Featured in the article Design Like You Give a Damn), a person who looks for design innovations for global needs – the International Habitat for Humanity fellow. Mr. Sinclair signed onto follow this group and that caused me to check this out further. I was impressed and liked the energy.
In the groups own words:
