Perspecta

The Yale Architectural Journal

Perspecta: The Yale Architectural Journal is the oldest student-edited architectural journal in the United States, is internationally respected for its contributions to contemporary architectural discourse with original presentations of new projects as well as historical and theoretical essays. Perspecta’s editors solicit articles from distinguished scholars and practitioners from around the world, and then, working with graphic design students from the School of Art, produce the journal. Retrospecta, an annual journal that includes samples of student work and activities at the School during each academic year, is edited by students and published by the School.
