This week’s issue of Paprika! approaches the field of architecture ‘from the outside in,’ as an attempt to gauge perceptions and ideas about the architect from the perspective of the wider professional landscape.Submissions from colleagues in the fields of law, fine art, medicine, and beyond not only reveal how design thinking informs their own professional practice, but also provide insight into how to make architecture more accessible to those outside our discipline. In short, this issue of Paprika! hopes to act as a bridge–a first step towards establishing a forum for a more active dialogue with those outside Rudolph Hall with the goal of ultimately creating a more critical, impactful, and relevant design profession.
