The latest issue of "Offramp," a journal produced by the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), uses a series of essays, conversations, and projects to investigate the numerous opportunities that architectural practitioners have created for themselves, given that design is undervalued and often invisible in our society.

Some of the voices presented in this collection are ADOBE LA, a design group whose work addresses the Latino-American communities in Los Angeles; Sam Mockbee, who founded Rural Studio in Hale County, Alabama; Chip Minnick, whose project "Nike Shelter" imagines an intimate partnership between architects and global corporations; HEDGE Design Collective, a group of young practitioners organized in a collaborative structure in order to pool resources and create ever-changing project teams; and Jonathan Hill, whose idea of the Illegal Architect subverts the codes and conventions of the profession by claiming that occupying architecture can be an act of design in its own right.
