Since 2013, an annual class of students from Jefferson's College of Architecture and the Build Environment seeks to capture the identity of the student body and showcase their amazing work. Through the Architectural Publication course, the group studies journalism and publication, develops a thesis on the contemporary student and college, and builds a narrative which highlights the individual and collective efforts of their generation. Each new cohort brings a new perspective and direction to the collegiate journal SPACEWORK, and every sequential edition serves as a time capsule for the current trends, diverse personalities, and compelling stories of that academic year.
Much has changed over the years, and SPACEWORK's evolution is a reflection of the shifts in both the institutional and social identity of the College of Architecture and the Built Environment. In 2021, the editorial team embraced the new context of education by exploring a new platform through which to showcase the projects and people of CABE - digital media. Launched in the spring of 2021, SPACEWORK serves as a living archive which can be built upon each sequential year, with annual updates bringing more content and continuing the tradition of student-led recognition of student work. The first digital edition, VOICES, focuses on the student’s story that often goes untold, and advocates for the representation of all voices within the College of Architecture and the Built Environment. The following update, CHANGES, recognizes how our students are creating change within the college, our communities, and the industry at large.
We encourage you to explore both last year's thematic structure, VOICES, and this year's update, CHANGES, through the two portals below. To fully appreciate our student body's diverse perspectives, visit the project archives and student gallery to access the entire collection of SPACEWORK's stories.
