Archizines Winner and Shortlist


We are pleased to announce the winner of the Archizines competition.

SET is a new zine by the Set Collective that will examine the relationship between architecture and cinema. Edited by Jamie Young, Graduate of UCD School of Architecture and designed by Paul Guinan, the first edition “The Shining’s Maze of Indeterminacy” is written by Emma Dwyer. This new archizine will go into production as soon as possible through sponsorship in-kind by Plus Print.

The jury, Elias Redstone (Curator, Archizines), Nathalie Weadick (Director, IAF), Alex Milton (Head of Design, NCAD), Stephen Mulhall (Editor, Building Material, AAI) and Ciaran Smith (Plus Print), said they ‘liked the clarity of idea in SET, the response to audience and the potential to develop this zine into an archive and collectible’. Elias Redstone, curator of Archizines said he would be delighted to include SET in the international Archizines Collection. www.archizines.com

Nathalie Weadick, Director of IAF said “we are delighted at the IAF to be able to foster a culture of independent publishing in architecture and we look forward to the public launch of SET. The quality of the submissions conveys a strong zine culture here, the shortlisted zines deserve also to be in existence and I hope the creators can make this happen”.
