Candide - Journal for Architectural Knowledge


Candide is a peer-reviewed journal based at the Department of Architecture Theory, RWTH Aachen University, and published by Actar, Barcelona/New York.

Not unlike Voltaire’s fictional character Candide, who traveled the eighteenth-century world on an eager but often disappointed search for knowledge, the journal’s editors have embarked on a twenty-first century search, in their case, of architectural knowledge.

Candide is released twice a year in English and German. One year after its release in print, an issue becomes available online as part of our open access policy.
