ISSUES Magazine receives national award

ISSUES Magazine has won the 2015 Douglas Haskell Award for Student Journals from the Center of Architecture in New York. Launched in 2012, the magazine explores links between architecture, design and social issues. It grew out of the class “Community Building, Building Community,” taught by Bob Hansman, associate professor of architecture in the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts and Gephardt Community Engagement Fellow at Washington University in St. Louis.

Cynthia Kracauer, managing director of the Center for Architecture, notes that the jury was “particularly impressed with the fresh and relevant content included and the strong mission of the publication.” ISSUES received the award for its Spring 2015 issue, which examined the idea of demolition and its implications, both positive and negative, in urban planning and community development.
