Volume magazine presents itself as a ‘project to go beyond architecture’. The ambition to research the potential of and opportunities for architecture in society, and to approach this from a social point of view lead to a unique practice of research, reflection, speculation and action. Two very different projects demonstrate method and result: ‘Architecture of Peace’, and ‘Internet of Things’. Both were titles of two issues of Volume, both are longer term projects in different stages of development and implementation – research-based, action driven.
