Process: PAX Publications


PAX is a publication about architecture that proposes as many answers as questions in search of a fresh and productive reading of past histories. PAX presents a collection of mock projects that suggest the critical relationship shared between architecture and its cultural setting.

Mendelsohn consulted with the team to experiment with design treatments that could be applied to the project and offer design + production insight.

Currently, the first volume pairs architects with cities, translating existing work into unintended contexts. By examining one through the guise of another, we claim that a richer reading is uncovered, one that alludes to the uncertainty of seemingly dogmatic knowledge.

​PAX publication was established in 2017 by Ali Karimi, Daniela Leon, Raffy Mardirossian, and Paul Matevosyan.​ Check out their project and support PAX.
