How is an architect’s knowledge generated, gathered, and passed on? Who are the people, institutions, and groups involved, and how do these participants go about their work? These questions are at the heart of the series of essays, Candide. Journal for Architectural Knowledge, which has been published biannually since 2009, describing and promoting a specific culture of knowledge about architecture. In order to do justice to the many different kinds of approach to research, each edition is divided into five sections: “Analysis” investigates forms of the built environment, looking for the knowledge invested in them. “Essay” offers space for a personal exploration of one of the grand themes of architecture. “Project” serves as a forum for practicing architects and their works. “Encounter” highlights the wealth of experience of famous or unjustly forgotten architects. “Fiction” appeals to the power of the imagination, which occasionally transports more knowledge than does empirical research. Candide per subscription.
