C-LAB (Columbia Labratory for Architecture Broadcasting) with Archis and AMO
Volume Magazine is part of a think tank operation comprised of Archis, AMO (Office for Metropolitan Architecture’s research counterpart), and C-LAB (Columbia Lab for Architectural Broadcasting), with the aim of creating a dialogue between the academic, professional, and p ublic realm regarding groundbreaking ideas and concepts in architecture.
Students were chosen from Columbia Universities’ graduate architecture programs to participate in this exchange as part of C-LAB, the outcome of which is the “Volume” publication, with a future vision of forays into radio, internet and television. C-LAB allowed students involvement in the publication on many fronts from graphic design with such noted firms/figures as 2x4 Inc. and Irma Boom, research with AMO and the Avery Library, and journalism and photography through Columbia University; all resources were available for use toward Volume Magazine publication.
