Founded in 1999, PRAXIS: a journal of writing + building has established itself as a distinctive voice in international architectural culture. The journal addresses contemporary design issues in both depth and breadth, and has engendered an architectural discourse uniquely rooted in practice. Emphasizing the interdependence of technology, design, theory, and history, PRAXIS investigates these fields as parts of an integrated discipline, promoting connections between various aspects of architectural production. The journal has generated a forum that bridges the gap between theory and practice. Published twice-yearly by an all-volunteer staff, PRAXIS has received critical acclaim as well as numerous awards and honors, including an ID award in 2004 and has twice been awarded design grants from the National Endowment for the Arts.
