Description

WTD is a publication where: the space maker, the detail enthusiast, the cynic, the idealist and the indecisive initiate a conversation. One that goes hay wire or reaches a dead end. Another that is so intricate it can’t be deciphered in one discussion. And select few that are relevant to a context and can (should) be manifested. These are the ones we yearn for – the common ground between all of the diverse personalities that have come together. The reason they connected – an attempt to alter the existing landscape. Through architectural discourse a conceptual ideal takes form. Other curious minds can voice their aspirations too – physically on the printed matter or among themselves. Here they take part in the design dialogue. A space is formed on the pages – where thoughts are constructed – a messy process that is exposed to the readers. Most importantly, a place where fleeting design ideas are anchored.

ISSUE 05:

There are two types of architecture that impact users in different ways . We have the buildings designed to be iconic, long-lasting, rising above the context and, frankly, intimidating. And we have spaces designed to be temporary where the users are expected to move on after a period of time. However, as we have seen within the region such spaces that are ment to be transient become permanent and that in turn affects the quality and function of the architecture. How can we, as designers, create spaces that improve the spatial qualities of transient architecture? What about the humanity of such spaces, how can we help the people that call temporary spaces their permanent home?
