Folio was the School of Architecture’s first publication of student and faculty work and the precursor to Building 22 – which is still in production. Intended as a bi-yearly publication, Folio ran uninterrupted throughout the 1980s accompanied by complimentary publications of other special projects such as DSA Japan, the Carleton Book and the 20th Anniversary compendium. After a brief hiatus in the early 1990s, Folio returned with a special edition box-set in 1997 and a millennium publication as its final issue in 2000.
“The folio represents selected work of the students and faculty of Carleton University’s School of Architecture. In a world flooded with often irrelevant information in all areas of knowledge, it is not a small responsibility to produce one more piece of printed matter…”
– Alberto Pérez-Gomez
The original “Folio” was presented, as its name implies, as a compilation of unbound, folded booklets. Each folio, housed in the elegant box-set captured aspects of the school’s design and research output including Studio work at all levels, Faculty projects, drawings from history and theory courses, Directed Studies Abroad (DSA), Visiting Critics Studios, and Design and Research Theses.
Edited, Designed and Produced by: K. Muramoto & S. Parcell
Published following the launch of Folio 1, the Carleton Book can be read as a complimentary publication that highlights Architectural Research by Faculty and Recent Graduates of the Carleton University School of Architecture.
Edited, Designed and Produced by K. Muramoto & S. Parcell
After a seven year hiatus, Folio returned with a box-set reminiscent of its original publication. Folio ‘97 (Folio 5) highlights all aspects of the school’s academic production including Studio work at all levels, Faculty projects, Workshops, Directed Studies Abroad (DSA), Visiting Critics Studios, and Design and Research Theses.
Edited, Designed and Produced by: Y. Cazabon & S. Wiley
The final Folio was produced at the threshold of major changes in the Architecture program as it shifted from the 5-year B.Arch to the 4 + 2 (BAS + M.Arch) structure. Inside, one finds the final year Projects, Research and Design Theses from the Graduating Class of 2000.
