SPEECH: is a bilingual architectural magazine devoted to the most topical issues and ideas in contemporary architecture, comprehensively analyzing them in terms of theory and practice, history and modernity, global trends and local peculiarities. Each issue focuses entirely on a single topic stemming directly from current architectural practice. Subjects that have not been distinctly articulated before and have not yet been covered in detail in architectural discourse are discussed in depth, based on numerous international and Russian projects. Authors include architects, architectural critics, cultural experts and historians, as well as experts in various fields related to architecture.
The first ten issues were devoted to the fundamentals of architectural language (details, color, ornament, materiality, structural design) and aspects of the urban environment (square, water, genius loci). Since then, SPEECH: has focused on specific typologies of contemporary architecture: museums, social housing, the metro, architecture for kids, and sports architecture. Starting with issue 16, the magazine will be moving away from typologies and focus again on current themes in the field of architecture.
All articles in SPEECH: are bilingual (Russian and English) and are accompanied by many illustrations. SPEECH: has been published twice a year since 2008, as from issue 13 in cooperation with JOVIS Publishers. Issues 1–12 are available on request through JOVIS Publishers.
