Despite its fluorescent pink colour and fancy typography, new architecture magazine TREMORS snuck through the doors and onto the shelves of art gallery shops at the start of the year without us noticing. And it has certainly made an impact, impressing us not only with its concept and rather wonderful use of building analogies in its manifesto (that sees its writers travelling “beyond bricks and mortar” in their search of ways to re-think urban space) but also because the quality of its content punches a pretty impressive thwack.
The second edition included an interview with the notoriously intimidating architecture critic Jonathan Meades – the third is set to come out later in the year and we anticipate some pretty serious vibrations.
