        • Karel Martens and the Architecture of the Journal

        Abstract
        The journal you are now holding, with its folded covers, open spine, different types of paper, printed in black-and-white and at times in full colour, with text set in a sans-serif font, running over two or three columns, with images in between that break up the structure – is the 100th issue of OASE Journal for Architecture. Inevitably, such a symbolic number calls for a celebration. And as with any celebration, a moment of reflection is due, a moment to look back. For OASE 75, the 25th anniversary of OASE was the occasion for a double-thick anthology of Dutch key texts previously published in OASE and never before translated in English. This issue takes the long-standing collaboration with designer Karel Martens as a starting point to explore the relationship between OASE and its graphic design. How does the medium of an architecture journal, as a physical object with a specific materiality and appearance, relate to the architecture discourse it develops?
