Candide is dedicated to exploring the culture of knowledge specific to architecture.

How is architectural knowledge generated, collected, presented, and passed on? Which forms of architectural knowledge can be observed? How can knowledge generated in reference to a specific task be applied to other contexts? Which experts, designers, and users, which institutions and organizations are involved? Which techniques, tools, and methods are instrumental?

Each issue of Candide is made up of five distinct sections. This framework responds to the diversity of architectural knowledge being produced, while challenging authors of all disciplines to test a variety of genres to write about and represent architecture. Contributions to these sections may be submitted at any time. Please visit Submit for further details.

Candide. Journal for Architectural Knowledge is edited by Axel Sowa, Susanne Schindler, Andres Lepik, and Anne Kockelkorn; designed by Benjamin Critton; published by Hatje Cantz; and indexed by the Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals, IBZ, and the RIBA Periodicals Index.
