Olson Kundig Architects is pleased to announce that Kirsten R. Murray and Alan Maskin are the feature editors of ARCADE 31.1 Art Moves, Cities Follow. The magazine, which hits newsstands December 7, 2012, considers the patterns created by artists who identify affordable abandoned or neglected districts and establish communities—only to be faced with aspects of displacement and gentrification. It has become ubiquitous in our understanding of urban growth and it is rarely questioned. In this issue, we ask artists, developers, educators, curators, graphic designers, writers, architects, urban planners and cultural producers to examine this migratory pattern from their varies vantage points.
