CriticalProductive Journal is an independent, peer-reviewed academic journal / magazine. It is a space in which cultural theorists, designers, architects, urbanists, artists, humanists, and activists can reflect on contemporary culture and experiment with provocative ideas, such as how to disrupt normative paradigms, how to activate and catalyze new potentials, and how best to utilize technology, data, and moving image to convey information.

We publish innovative research, scholarship, and creative work that is at the forefront of architecture, urbanism, and cultural theory. We welcome essays, creative design work, and visual art.

Journal Sections: Editor / Editorial Collective, Global Briefing, Criticism + Conversation, Black Cities / Americas.
