Issue 35.3 | Rethinking Efficiency (Winter 2017)

10.00
"Efficiency is a boon to industry, getting things done cheaper and faster. Yet when the value of efficiency creeps into other realms such as art, education, ethics, and social interaction, our culture starts to suffocate." –Issue 35.3 feature

Sawhorse Revolution, this issue’s feature editor, teaches youth to design and build. Underneath that mission, its philosophical drive is to explore how groups rediscover meaning in a culture rife with apathy and disempowerment, in which efficiency has entangled itself into all aspects of our lives. For this ARCADE feature, they approach the topic of efficiency broadly, colorfully, and even playfully, having prompted some of their favorite thinkers and writers to consider where inefficiency exists (or existed) and what beauty and humanity can arise therefrom.

This issue also includes ARCADE’s regular columns covering a wide range of topics related to design, architecture, urbanism, and art seen from a Northwest perspective.

Issue 35.3 is printed in two-color (black and silver) on coated stock. The issue was designed by Annabelle Gould.
