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 issue offers the opportunity to present contemporary projects, while other 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. Now on its seventh issue, Project has established a distinctive identity as a pointed and serious forum for work and thought on the discipline of architecture today.

Alfie Koetter is a co-founding editor of Project, a principal of Medium, and the director of exhibitions at Yale School of Architecture. He also teaches design studios at Yale and the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at Columbia University. He received his MArch from the Yale School of Architecture and his BS in urban and regional studies from Cornell University. Prior to establishing the office Medium, he worked at Koetter Kim and Associates, Gauthier Architects, Mario Campi Architects, Kohn Pedersen Fox, and WORKac.

Daniel Markiewicz is a co-founding editor of Project, an associate at Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and a registered architect in New York. He previously worked as a research assistant and designer at Plan B Architecture + Urbanism, where he led an investigation into developing a sustainability index for cities. He received his MArch from Yale School of Architecture, where he was awarded the William Wirt Winchester Traveling Fellowship, the H.I. Feldman Prize (with Ryan Welch), and the James Gamble Rogers Memorial Fellowship. Prior to attending Yale, he received his BS in civil engineering and architecture from Princeton University, where he received the William Feay Shellman Traveling Prize.

Emmett Zeifman is a co-founding editor of Project, a principal of Medium, and an instructor in design studio and visual studies at the Southern California Institute of Architecture. He holds an MPhil with distinction in architecture from the University of Cambridge, where he was the 2013–14 Yale Bass Scholar in Architecture; an MArch from Yale School of Architecture, where he received the George Nelson Scholarship and the Janet Cain Seilaff Award; and a BA with first-class honors in English literature from McGill University. Prior to establishing the office Medium, he worked at Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates in New York. At Yale, he was coeditor of the publications Rethinking Chongqing: Mixed-Use and Super-Dense (Yale School of Architecture, 2012) and Retrospecta (Yale School of Architecture, 2009). In 2016, in collaboration with Constance Vale, he completed the design and construction of the Central Hub at SCI-Arc for the experimental opera, Hopscotch.

Consolidated Urbanism was incorporated in 1980 to support critical analysis of architecture and the contemporary city. Today, its activities continue through the publication of the architectural journal Project (founded in 2011) and associated public events and discussions.
