The Site Magazine wins Gold Medal at the National Magazine Awards
The National Magazine Awards were announced at the annual awards gala in Toronto on June 2, 2023, and The Site Magazine was announced as the Gold Medal Winner in the category of Best Magazine: Art, Literary, & Culture. The magazine won this award in 2018 and was also awarded an honorable mention in the Magazine Grand Prix.
The Site Magazine emerged from Waterloo Architecture in 2015, and has since been led by The Site Collective, a group that includes Waterloo Architecture alumni: Miriam Ho (BAS '08, MArch '15), Nicky Bruun-Meyer (MArch '13), Aisling O'Carroll (BAS'09) and Amrit Phull (BAS '11, MArch '15).
The Site Magazine is an independent journal that addresses diverse issues pertaining to our built environment. Through a range of writing types, design projects, and visual formats, each issue advocates for a critical consideration of the layered relations of our built environment posed from varied perspectives, including the cultural, political, formal, social, and ecological.
Current Waterloo Architecture 4B Studio instructor Amrit Phull was the lead editor of the latest issue, The Edit. The Edit is an active retelling of the built environment—one of our most ambitious and bold publications to date in its physical format, contributions, and editorial agenda. This issue is about revisiting the archives and drafting new records. What truths and tools can we use to understand and overcome the monolithic, heteronormative, Eurocentric coding that structure our lives?
