The project The Site of Discourse intends to identify, analyze, debate and reflect on the editorial culture of the Portuguese periodicals of architecture, over the twentieth century. This study is based on the conviction that this editorial culture cannot be fully understood without a framework that requires an interpretative and analytical nature. The title of the project — The Site of Discourse — has a number of different meanings. First and foremost, it invokes an idea that belongs to architecture itself. The title suggests that this project is about the discourse as well as about the “place” on which such that discourse is produced — the specialized periodicals of architecture. It also invokes a complex grid of configurations about “who” produces, “what” contents involves, and “how” such “site” is constructed.
