2ha is an independent magazine interested in the suburbs. We plan to publish on a bimonthly basis over a year-long period, each issue exploring the notion of the suburb and its relationship to a particular field of study.

Issue 03 explores the relationship between suburban morphology and public spaces. Three essays observe existing conditions and propose an architectural response. A fourth and final essay describes a real intervention which deals with conceptions of public and private in suburbia.

The work exhibited involves the process behind the editing and design of a magazine. In tracing the development from original material to final product, it aims to reveal how architecture and architectural ideas are translated through the medium of publishing.
