Paprika!, the Yale School of Architecture’s often-weekly, student-published broadsheet printed in quantities of 500 on an off-white newsprint, and distributed on every level of Rudolph Hall, Paul Rudolph's Brutalist Yale Art and Architecture Building. Paprika!’s seeming informality belies its more existential impulse. As architecture students, we are daily sifting through and sorting what matters. Who are our heroes? What is urgent? Why are we here? Paprika! is a material imprint of these questions, a constructed place where ideas unfold, convictions collide, and words work to reconcile what we do with why we do it. As such, Paprika! has become a collective menagerie of essays, manifestos, drawings, bulletins, field notes, ruminations, provocations. It is both a whisper and a shout. It is both timely and timeless. Paprika! is a call for active participation in our educations and our discipline.

Paprika! is an entirely student-driven publication of the Yale School of Architecture, issued ten times per semester. Founded in 2014, Paprika! provides an outlet for student expression and discourse about the present and future state of architecture. Submissions are open to the public, as are our meetings. We receive no fiscal support from the university, and they exercise no editorial control. We provide a platform for emerging voices, in order to foster dialogue not only within the school, but also in the broader world of design and aim to maintain such a platform.
