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 journal Candide, 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.
