This was once an open call to design polemicists in every field of knowledge.

Until early 2017 and for almost three years, LapsusLima existed as a podcast and –sporadically— as a blog on the history and theory of architecture, with an outstanding focus on the Bauhaus and its creatures.

It then evolved into a paying journal to publish the sort of work the prestige suspects couldn’t or wouldn’t make room for: because it was too speculative, too stylistically divergent or conceptually abstruse.

The general scope of the journal was broadly spatial (in other words: about time), with a platform that included –but did not exhaust itself— at architecture, lest it be inscribed within the greater schemes of history and geography, archæology and anthropology, and/or the physical and behavioural sciences.

LapsusLima was a place where the past was assayed, the present exploded, and the future rehearsed –with few holds barred.

And now that future is coming home to roost.
