The Printed Website: Volume III & The Comments

NEWbook016

Low-tech Magazine Volume III

The newest Low-tech Magazine book collects 18 articles published between 2018 and 2021. At 388 pages it’s a thin book compared to earlier volumes. When we started the book series, the challenge was to unlock an archive of almost 12 years. It made sense to pack this content into as few volumes as possible.

However, looking ahead, we will publish more often, once every one to three years, depending on the number of articles written. From now on, the articles will be arranged chronologically, from oldest to newest, and no longer the other way around. This volume contains 184 images in black and white.

Low-tech Magazine: The Comments

We also launched a book which collects almost 3,000 comments on the roughly 100 articles which are published in the three other books. This volume has 688 pages and no images. We included all feedback up to November 7, 2021. Read more about the comments book here.

Over the years, readers have often stated that the comments on the website are (at least) as interesting as the articles themselves. We agree. Low-tech Magazine would not have been even half what it is now without the comments. You can even take this literally, because this is one of the thickest books we have published so far, despite the extra small font we use.

New Edition

Finally, we have published a second edition of the first book we published in 2019. This new edition has almost twice as many images and follows the same design as the other volumes. In contrast to the first edition, the images are not “dithered” and of higher quality. We use a smaller font to pack more content on fewer pages. This second edition also fixes some errors in the articles and the references.

More books

The printed archives of Low-tech Magazine now amount to four volumes with a total of 2,398 pages and 709 images. In the next weeks, we will make all volumes available with a linen wrap cover. Next year, we plan to release the book series in other languages, starting with French [subscribe to our French newsletter to get a notification]. We will also offer thematic books, which rearrange the content of the existing volumes according to the specific interests of readers. Finally, we anticipate a printed version of No Tech Magazine.

Along with the books, we have also renewed our Patreon page. Patrons get early access to new books at reduced prices. They also receive a monthly update about on-going DIY projects at Low-tech Magazine.

Lancement du concours d’architecture international pour le nouveau Musée de l’Holocauste Montréal ????

Communiqué de presse :

« Montréal, mercredi 1er décembre 2021 – Le Musée de l’Holocauste Montréal (MHM) annonce le lancement d’un concours d’architecture international pour la conception d’un nouveau bâtiment, situé sur le boulevard Saint-Laurent à Montréal. Le Musée invite les architectes à soumettre leur candidature jusqu’au 28 janvier 2022 pour mettre à profit leur créativité autour de l’importante question des lieux voués à la mémoire de l’Holocauste et, de manière plus marquée, à l’éducation des générations futures quant aux risques universels du racisme, de l’antisémitisme, de la haine et de l’indifférence.

Fondé en 1979, par des Montréalais survivants et survivantes de l’Holocauste et de jeunes leaders de la communauté juive, le MHM est la principale institution muséale canadienne dédiée à l’éducation, la préservation et la transmission de la mémoire et de l’histoire de l’Holocauste. Le MHM s’engage à lutter contre toutes les formes de haine et d’antisémitisme, à promouvoir le respect des droits de l’homme et de la dignité humaine et à contribuer à un monde plus juste et socialement responsable.

Le Musée vise à atteindre le plus haut niveau d’excellence architecturale, à marquer le paysage du boulevard Saint-Laurent de façon durable, à établir des liens avec de nouveaux publics et à créer un impact significatif sur les générations actuelles et futures.

Les portes du nouveau MHM s’ouvriront en 2025, permettant à une nouvelle génération de visiteurs du monde entier de découvrir l’histoire de l’Holocauste, les histoires résilientes des survivants et survivantes qui ont reconstruit leur vie à Montréal, et l’importance du respect des droits de la personne. Le Musée sera un espace pour cultiver la conscience historique et encourager l’action citoyenne pour contribuer à un monde plus juste et socialement responsable. La campagne publique pour le nouveau musée, intitulée Donnons une Voix, sera lancée à l’hiver 2022 et permettra de recueillir des fonds et de promouvoir cette cause importante.

Formule de concours
Le concours se déroule en deux grandes étapes et vise à établir un dialogue entre les équipes et le Musée, de façon à faire évoluer les idées vers un meilleur projet.

ÉTAPE 1

  • L’étape 1.1 vise à qualifier des équipes qui ont la capacité de mener à bien le projet, au moyen d’un dossier de qualification sommaire, qui présente la composition de l’équipe et des projets pertinents réalisés.
  • L’étape 1.2 vise à favoriser l’émergence d’idées, d’interprétations et de points de vue pour le nouveau Musée. Sur la base des intentions conceptuelles et des stratégies spatiales présentées de façon anonyme, quatre propositions seront désignées finalistes par le jury.

ÉTAPE 2

  • L’étape 2.1 vise à présenter les ingénieurs en structure et électromécanique et les architectes paysagistes qui s’ajoutent aux architectes finalistes pour former une équipe pluridisciplinaire, en vue de l’étape suivante.
  • L’étape 2.2 est rémunérée et permettra aux quatre équipes finalistes d’approfondir les intentions et concepts précédemment présentés, guidés par les commentaires formulés par le jury, en élaborant des solutions architecturales et en développant le projet en mode interdisciplinaire.

Concours d’architecture de l’Ordre des architectes du Québec.
Coût de construction estimé : 27 880 000$ (CAD) avant taxes.

The Prince symbol has been salvaged from a 1993 floppy disk

Prince was way ahead of non-fungible tokens – with a symbol that was intended to make life a pain-in-the-a** for the record label. (Non-f***able totem?) And now Anil Dash and Limor Fried/Adafruit have brought back that image from a floppy.
