Arkitektur tidskrift (kun) for arkitekter…

De fleste arkitektur tidsskrifter smider om sig med nye indtryk: det er en verden af smukke mesterværker – som et salgskatalog for kommende klienter og investorer. Det Østrigske magasin, Wonderland er anderledens:

“WONDERLAND is a magazine that does not show a single building, but focuses on the “how” of day-to-day architectural practice, on the architects themselves. A kind of serialized manual, it directs attention to issues and problems of the architectural profession.”

Et citat af Rem Koolhaas tegner ihvertfald lyst for bladets holdninger (wonderland, #1, “Getting Started”, page 30):

“Maybe, architecture doesn’t have to be stupid after all. Liberated from the obligation to construct, it can become a way of thinking about anything – a discipline that represents relationships, proportions, connections, effects, the diagram of everything.”
