New York Review of Architecture is rooted in New York but interested in architecture everywhere. We avoid themed issues, preferring instead to pursue multiple themes across issues. We are particularly interested in pieces that break down architecture’s silos, tying together academia, practice, and the public we all serve. We value writing that is critical, engaging, and accessible to readers. We especially value work that represents viewpoints that have been historically undervalued or ignored in architectural discourse.

In general we like pieces that are grounded, topical and reported. It helps if you are going to talk to original sources, and have strong research. At the same time, we appreciate clear positions—direct, fearless, a little irreverent—and a sense of humor!

We have two editorial processes. For our weekly newsletter SKYLINE, there is a different editor each week. They send an e-mail out to our writers' room each Friday with events we would like covered. Writers claim topics or pitch other happenings. Dispatches are filed within the week. Our dispatch writers range from well established architects and writers to architecture students. The rate for all dispatches is the same: $30. Parts of SKYLINE often make it into the print edition.

Samuel Medina and Marianela D'Aprile oversee our bimonthly print issues. We work with writers to develop reviews, reported work, and essays. We try to give our authors a month or more to develop their pieces. The rates range from $100 to $400. Our editors are friendly and collaborative, but unless you have worked with us often before, your final draft will almost certainly end up looking quite different from your first draft.

We are also interested in working with artists, graphic designers, and of course architects—feel free to send us your portfolio and we can put it on file for consideration for our posters, issue and art commissions. We also are open to art-centered pitches.

We see our contributors as a community—no matter your level, we add our contributors to the 'writer's room' and give them an inside view on emerging projects and happenings in the publication.
