Dark Matter U provided the design, content, and coediting of the October 2023 issue of ARCHITECT. The collective was formed in 2020 alongside protests for the reinvigorated Black Lives Matter movement and the global COVID-19 pandemic. DMU is a Black-, Indigenous-, and people of color-led network representing a design justice movement within academia and built environment practitioners who converged to address longstanding, structural racism present in the design fields and education. 

School of Architecture alum Victor Zagabe (BAS '16, MArch '20) is a core organizer in the collective and contributed to several pieces in the issue.

The Dark Matter Issue: Framing is available to read online now.

Dark Matter U's 2023 Arriscraft Lecture, 'Coteaching with community' is streaming on the School of Architecture YouTube page.
