The Avery Review
Critical Essays on Architecture
Read Issue 56

The Avery Review stands with all those fighting, organizing, teaching, and writing for abolition—and, in architecture, with all those working against the white supremacy, settler colonialism, ableism, racial capitalism, and heteropatriarchy upheld in and by our field.

The essays in Issue 56 test the limits of the review as a genre: looking at and through places, methods, and books to envision and approach other ideas differently. Jay Cephas reads through Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor’s Race for Profit to deepen conceptions of racial capitalism; Marianela D’Aprile and Douglas Spencer reframe Manfredo Tafuri to envigorate unionization among architectural workers; Stefanie Hessler reviews the art and literature of an erotic ocean, riding in, on, and through its waves; Daniel Jacobs and Brittany Utting evaluate the possibilities and pitfalls of three legal instruments of forest sovereignty; and Dima Srouji excavates histories, and present-day realities, of settler colonial archaeology in Palestine.
