The Avery Review
Critical Essays on Architecture
Read Issue 25

Wishing you a good slide into fall with the latest issue of the Avery Review. This September, Shelby Doyle and Leslie Forehand argue for the “spinster” as a figure of feminist digital craft; Adam Longenbach surveys the “sixth façade” and the architecture of the aerial view; Shota Vashakmadze contemplates the sod house on the prairie; and Joseph M. Watson asks the question of who Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Usonia” was designed for.

In other Avery Review news, we’d like to welcome two new voices to the editorial mix. Shumi Bose is joining our fleet of contributor editors, and we’re pleased to announce Imani Day as the 2017–18 Editorial Fellow.
