Read Assistant Professor Jason Payne's recent essay "Projekti Bunkerizimit: The Strange Case of The Albanian Bunker" in Log 31: New Ancients recognizing the sudden reappearance of history in the work of an emerging group of architects, curators, theorists, and, of course, historians. Drawing a parallel with the 17th-century quarrel between the Ancients and Moderns at the Academie française, guest editors Dora Epstein Jones and Bryony Roberts present the work of practitioners who explore the contemporary possibilities of history. This Spring/Summer 2014 issue particularly emphasizes drawing that synthesizes technology and precedent, including a Piranesi-inspired digital reimagining of Istanbul and an animated analytic drawing of Borromini’s San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane linked via a QR code in the magazine.
