DIALECTIC, a refereed journal of the School of Architecture, CA+P, University of Utah.

Dialectic VI invites articles, reports, documentation, and photo essays on the craft of architecture and the architecture of crafts(wo)manship.

The editors value critical statements and alternative practices. We hope to include instructive case studies and exciting models for professional practice. Possible contributions may also include mapping of ongoing debates across the world, and reviews of books, journals, exhibitions and new media.
