Project is a print and online platform for critical writing and architectural projects, focused on publishing the work of emerging practices and critics. A glossy, color insert in each print issue offers the opportunity to present contemporary projects, while other print formats include concise, manifesto-like statements by young architects, extended conversations with significant figures in the field, long-form critical essays, and short readings of provocative images and projects. Issue six is the journal's first guest-edited issue (John Capen Brough and Parsa Khalili, editors), and introduces an exciting new cast of contributors to its readers. With issue seven, as well as the expansion of online content through a redesigned and more active website, Project has established a distinctive identity as a pointed and serious forum for work and thought on the discipline of architecture today.

John Capen Brough graduated from Princeton University with a BA in architecture in 2004, where he received the F. Bernard White Senior Thesis Prize for his thesis on the work of Alvar Aalto. In 2009, he completed his MArch at Yale’s School of Architecture, where he received the AIA Henry Adams Medal and the George Nelson Fellowship. He is the coeditor of Perspecta 43: Taboo, and the author of several articles on the intersection of art and architecture and their manifestations in specific places at particular times.

Parsa Khalili studied at the École Nationale Superieure d'Architecture de Versailles and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Illinois and Yale’s School of Architecture, where he was awarded the George Nelson Fellowship and Winchester Fellowship. Khalili was awarded the SOM Prize for Architecture (2009) and chosen as one of Wallpaper* Magazine's “Next Generation Designers” (2010). He was coeditor of Perspecta 43: Taboo, and in 2013, was awarded the Plym Fellowship. Previously, he was an associate and director of visualization at Richard Meier & Partners. Currently, he serves as assistant professor at the Angewandte in Vienna, teaching with Greg Lynn.
