About—Volume Magazine
Volume Magazine

Volume is an independent quarterly magazine that sets the agenda for design. With going beyond architecture’s definition of ‘making buildings’ it reaches out for global views on designing environments, advocates broader attitudes to social structures, and reclaims the cultural and political significance of architecture. Created as a global idea platform to voice architecture any way, anywhere, anytime, it represents the expansion of architectural territories and the new mandate for design.

It is a project by Archis (Amsterdam), AMO (Rotterdam) and C-Lab (Columbia University, New York). Founded by Ole Bouman, Rem Koolhaas and Mark Wigley in 2005, Volume is set out to be not only a magazine, but also a studio and a school.
