Caliper Journal

Self-initated project with sponsorship from RMIT University, Bright Studio, ARM Architecture, NH Architecture
Caliper is an independent architecture journal based in Naarm (Melbourne), Australia. It was born out of a desire to have a messier and more meaningful discussion about architecture and its place in the world. Caliper is a space for the younger generation of designers (not limited to architecture) to share ideas, publish, create a culture and contribute to larger conversations occurring within the design disciplines.

Of the 10 published issues, we were managing editors for the first six (Agency, Identity, Power, Sample, Collapse and Love) along with Senesios Frangos. For the final 4 issues (Shift, Time & Faith, Permission) we acted as the editorial board to assist the new team of editors at the helm.

Shift(ed) Exhibition & Launch

In Collaboration with Georgia McCole, Cody McConnell, Ruby Lang, Taya Tahir, Cathy Xu and Sam Torre.

In the tumult of 2020, Caliper and the RMIT Architecture student elective Proof interrogated the theme of ‘shift’. To shift is to change how we think and rethink how we live. This exhibition and launch party draws together this cohort of young practitioners to print, display, and discuss the work that they have produced in the year since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

Caliper Journal Issue 05: Collapse
Self-published 2019

Publishing, Publication Design, Editing

Editors: Nicola Cortese, Lauren Crockett, Stephanie Pahnis and Senesios Frangos

Guest Editor: Michael Strack

“Collapse was a grandiose word, once reserved for the fall of empires, but now it seems more like unemployment: an everyday occurrence, unpleasant, but perhaps necessary to reintroduce some slack in our lives.

Collapse exists, if only to return nutrients to the soil. So, there is a productivity of collapse: the failure of one paradigm can only bring another - and this is the only way we know how to change.”
