The exhibition 003_READ celebrates 21 years of publishing of the Warehouse Journal at the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Architecture. Founded in 1991 by a group of students that wanted to showcase the strength of the Faculty following a dormancy in published work that had lasted since the 1970s. It set forth with the mandate for being a medium in which to foster and disseminate discourse and critique. Since then each year a volume is put forth by a different set of editors and thus each year Warehouse finds a unique creative direction, editorial style, and scale of production – all the while maintaining an initial mandate seeking to find the relationship between architecture and publishing. Volumes 1-21 reflect the evolutionary changes to the academic structure of the Faculty, and reveal the changing world of publishing through its level of production and aesthetic value.
