Long time no post! 

Its that time of year! Volume 5 is going to be released next Wednesday, February 11th at 6:00 pm in Watson Auditorium at Wentworth. It has been a long process to arrive at volume 5 and we are excited to share the newest volume with you. The theme this year is Matter. Matter can mean a variety of things and we are eager to show you Wentworth's take on the idea of matter. 


Submission Call for v/5!

Hello All, 

The spring semester has now ended. It has been a long semester and we are sure that you have all created some amazing work over the past semester and even from the fall semester. We are now accepting submissions for v/5, you know what that means! It's time to submit! What is great about this year is that we are taking submissions online, so you can do it from the comfort of your own home, which is great since many of you may have left campus. Below is a reminder on how you can submit, which you can do from one of the tabs on the top of the page! 


Here is how to submit! 


Fill in your information.

 --Within a few days you will receive an email from us with a link to your Dropbox folder.

 --Place images, renderings, writing, or anything else you wish to submit in that folder.

 Responding to the topic of “What’s the Matter?” is meant to be ambiguous. Consider the many definitions of matter and how they relate to architecture. Whether it be more literal (ex. a discussion of matter as building materials) or hypothetical (ex. a response to the matter of space), there are endless interpretations. These are just examples, and with your unique submissions, we can begin to interpret and frame the question ourselves.

 In the upcoming months submissions will be reviewed and you will be notified if your work has been selected for publication in the 2014-2015 edition of War.


We look forward to reviewing your work and thank-you in advance for submitting to the Wentworth Architecture review’s V5.


Go ahead and submit so we can get to work on creating the best volume of WAr yet! 


The WAr Team




Getting Ready for v/5

This week we have been hard at work with the submission posters for v/5. The topic of this edition of the Wentworth Architecture Review is Matter. Be on the lookout for the posters that will be going up around Annex North very soon! 

Architecture is war. War is architecture.

Wentworth Architecture review is an annually printed student publication that circulates the rich culture of Wentworth design. The journal is designed to benefit the Wentworth design community through the establishment of discourse, conversation and work. WAr, as the Wentworth community refers it to, is solely a student run initiative. The journal publishes the work of undergraduate and graduate students, alumni and faculty from Wentworth’s architecture, interior design and industrial design programs.

 WAr was founded as a way to exhibit the rich design culture present here at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, MA.  Our first journal was released at the beginning of the Fall 2010 semester, and since then we have produced 3 volumes in total, with a release cycle that begins in January.  

The journal provides a centralized place for the Wentworth community to both look for inspiration and have an opportunity to have their thoughts and work be published. This process happens through the submission period at the end of the spring semester. As a team we try to identify important themes that are impacting the pedagogy and praxis of design; we then present this theme to the community and ask submissions to be focused and creatively engaged in our discussion.

 Our latest publication, volume three, focused on the concept “build” and what this phrase means within the education and practice of architecture, interior design and industrial design. Students, faculty and alumni were asked to respond to this theme through written essays, design proposals and built projects.  Currently we are working on the submissions we received for volume four that is based on the theme of “translation.” We have asked the Wentworth community to think about what translation means and respond with written and graphic work.

 We see WAr growing and becoming much richer and innovative everyday. This is the start of something big, and we need all the help we can get.
