About Volume

Volume is an independent magazine that sets the agenda for architecture and design. With going beyond architecture’s definition of ‘making buildings’ it reaches out for global views on designing environments, advocates broader attitudes to social structures, and reclaims the cultural and political significance of architecture. Created as a global idea platform to voice architecture any way, anywhere, anytime, it represents the expansion of architectural territories and the new mandate for design.

The Volume project continues Archis, magazine for Architecture, City and Visual Culture and its predecessors since 1929. Volume magazine and Archis RSVP events form an experimental think tank devoted to the process of real-time spacial and cultural reflexivity.


ARCHIS – Publishers, Tools, Interventions – is a Cultural Platform collaborating with various knowledge partners to research, debate, rethink and reinvent our spatial environment.

AMO is a research and design studio that applies architectural thinking to disciplines beyond the borders of architecture and urbanism. AMO operates in tandem with its companion company, the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Volume is produced and published by the Archis Foundation, The Netherlands.
