issue no. 1: Table

Call for submissions



POOL is looking for contributions that engage with the ubiquitous and overlooked table, as an allegory to framing the culture of architecture at large. We welcome essays and other content endemic to academic publishing, but also encourage unconventional media such as comics, experimental films, and syllabi. Accepted content will be published digitally on a rolling basis, as well as considered for a June 2016 print issue. 

If you would like to be considered, please submit your work according to our guidelines, along with any specific formatting requests, by April 1, 2016. Please direct any inquiries to

See here for our past calls.

All body text should be 2500 words or less, and submitted in the form of editable Microsoft Word documents. All text, including footnotes, should be edited according to the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition.

All images must be submitted as .tiff or .jpeg, in RGB or sRGB. Maximum acceptable file size is 20MB, and max pixel width for display on POOL’s website is 1500. Contributors are responsible for procuring the rights to any images they want to use.
