Editor in chief since 2007 Arjen Oosterman will tell how and most of all why the project came into being and what he foresees for the future.
Volume is an independent quarterly magazine that sets the agenda for design. With going beyond architecture’s definition of ‘making buildings’ it reaches out for global views on designing environments, advocates broader attitudes to social structures, and reclaims the cultural and political significance of architecture.
Volume is a project by Archis (Amsterdam), AMO (Rotterdam) and C-Lab (Columbia University, New York). The Volume project continues ARCHIS and its predecessors since 1929. Founded by Ole Bouman, Rem Koolhaas and Mark Wigley in 2005, Volume is set out to be not only a magazine, but also a studio and a school.
Arjen Oosterman (1956) is a critic, educator and curator. With a background in architectural history he is editor-in-chief of Volume magazine (since 2007). As an educator he previously taught architectural history and later on specialized in research and writing at schools of architecture. He published extensively on contemporary architecture, contributed to Dutch television documentaries, was member of juries and awards.
