What was originally conceived as a short, sometimes relevant, pamphlet to accompany our school's lecture series, has become something much greater. Through many iterations, leveraging free letter and tabloid duplex printing, INTER·PUNCT attempts to bring ideas and discourse, mostly about architecture, to the students and faculty in an easily digestible format, right on their desk.
This is INTER·MISSION.
In it's third and current iteration, INTER·MISSION emerges as a platform for student writing. The mission statement of the current iteration is as follows:
We read the news on our phone (if we read it at all), draw on our tablets, and write love letters on our computers. What happened to paper? Surely, we can’t all care about trees that much. This isn’t about the quantity of content; it’s a question of the streamlining of information into 140 characters (280 now we suppose) that illuminate our faces, the information stuck somewhere in our optical nerves.
We provide you with a new format: a piece of paper, tabloid, duplex printed. Each issue explores a new topic, through words and images. In a sense, we hope this new format will help you turn on, tune in, and drop out. Today, it is more important than ever to slow down, pause, process, and think. And what better way to do this than receiving more content? Take a break, and sit down with us.
This is INTER·MISSION.
In an effort to better engage the students in critical discussion, INTER·MISSION was re-immagined as collection of snippets around a specific topic. Short and flashy, playfully laid out, this iteration was intended to be read in short snippets, whenever convenient, allowing the reader to engage and think throughout the day.
INTER·MISSION was first conceived as excerpts from vol. 2, inter·view, to accompany Carnegie Mellon's Architecture lecture series. Each excerpt intended to pair one past critic's or practitioner's ideas with the one of that day, either complimenting, juxtaposing, or just loosely relating, asking the readers to interrogate the day's lecture from a different perspective. This iteration of INTER·MISSION lasted through 4 volumes, publishing over 20 issues.
