0.5 On the Ground

0.5 On the Ground


The inaugural issue of PLAT sets out to establish a publication that could be at once rigorous and loose. As a platform for the students of Rice University, PLAT 0.5 is a recombination of work 'from the margins' of architectural projects, born from a desire to crystallize salient but often forgotten moments in our lives and labors as architecture students. The title was chosen for its implications of framing a territory: to plat a neighborhood is a common practice even today in the vast spaces of Texas. To us this was fascinating.
