Volume XIV, Number 1, Winter 2021
Published by the American Agora Foundation, Inc
Founded in 2007 by Lewis H. Lapham, the legendary former editor of Harper’s, Lapham’s Quarterly is a contemporary platform for the voices of the past. Each volume is more akin to a book than a magazine, curated with exceptional care, intellectual yet accessible, historical yet not academic.
This issue of Lapham's Quarterly explores the relationship between humanity and machines, testing and teasing the boundaries of optimism and nihilism. Original essays are balanced with great excerpts from past voices such as Charlotte Bronte, Virgil, Mashal McLuhan, Henry Ford, Lewis Mumford, Leonardo Da Vinci and many others.
Amongst the many virtues of the publication, the ability to demonstrate a timeless resilience of critical thought and paint a compelling picture of technologies past, present and future makes it a truly insightful and entertaining read for architects.
