See/Saw is curated, designed, and distributed by students at the University of Maryland's School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. Arranged around themes in architectural discourse, See/Saw is biased towards the old, the latent, and the new. See/Saw, No. 2: Difference investigates consequences of the coincident loosening and tightening of architecture’s margins. As a collection of critical texts, design proposals, and built projects, this issue repositions difference as a disruptive and propulsive force situated at the center of architecture’s expanded field—ripe for staking common ground and exploring new opportunities for architectural agency and production amid social, political, and cultural influences.
