Plat Issue 7.0: Sharing
The editors of the newest issue of PLAT had second thoughts about SHARING. They were tempted by more than a few edgier themes: Platform, Exigent Extraction, Hard Softwares, Smart, and so on. Nevertheless, they stuck to their guns and decided to dissect the topic by casting a wide net. The nature of contemporary sharing started to become contested roughly a decade ago, proceeds today with fervor, and continues to benefit from a direct engagement with architecture and vice versa.
The cover of this issue was created by Amsterdam-based The Rodina and attempts to convey the dangerously cute nature of sharing. Sometimes you want to pet it, but at any moment it might bite you. The editors justified the breadth of this issue by aiming to provide you, the reader, with many ideas, ultimately allowing you to decide what you think of sharing.
