Critical Essays on Architecture
Read Issue 48

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. BLACK LIVES MATTER.

As Angela Davis recently reminded listeners on Democracy Now!, abolition “is not primarily about dismantling, getting rid of, but it’s about re-envisioning. It’s about building anew.” As a journal dedicated to decentering the objects, histories, and authors of architecture, we are committed (and will continue to recommit) to publishing essays that propose radical changes to the current order of things, and to amplifying the work of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) who offer a way forward in this re-building.

In issue 48, Cruz Garcia and Nathalie Frankowski listen to the post-colonial loudreaders of Puerto Rico; Louise Hickman takes stock of the devices and affective labor involved in flying while disabled; Evan Kleekamp browses the “impaired commodities” of Emily Barker’s art; Jen Rose Smith traces Native resistance to seasonal salmon fisheries in coastal Alaska in the summer of COVID-19; and Francisco Quiñones looks behind Luis Barragán’s walls to consider the role of domestic labor in shaping Mexican modernism.

Our mission has been (and will always be) a work in progress, with far more to be done and undone, learned and unlearned, and we invite you to join us in this work with your participation, suggestions, and submissions (editors@averyreview.com). Look out for another round of critical essays on architecture in the fall.
