We are thrilled to announce that the GSA has been invited to become an academic partner to PLACES Journal in the company of schools such as Sci-Arc, Columbia University, ETH Z├╝rich, MIT, Pratt and many more. We are the first and only African partner so look out for articles and essays by more African scholars, staff and students in the coming year. Places Journal is an essential and trusted resource on the future of architecture, landscape, and urbanism. We harness the power of public scholarship to promote equitable cities and resilient landscapes. In these pages you will find writers, designers, and artists who are responding to the profound challenges of our time: environmental health and social inequity, climate change, resource scarcity, human migration, rapid technological innovation, and the erosion of the public sphere. These challenges demand that we rethink how we plan, design, construct, and maintain the built environment. They also demand that ambitious design research and practice move from the margins to the centre of cultural discussion. Please take a look at their website www.placesjournal.org
