Founded in 2008, Fresh Meat Journal is produced entirely by students at the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Architecture. With contributors varying between students and international practicing architects, we aim to produce a journal that raises interest among an audience within the architectural discipline of Chicago and beyond. Operating through digital platforms, printed media, and social events, FM curates conversations to examine the role of architecture in today’s world.

Risks and challenges

The journal’s tenth anniversary issue investigates the theme of reference within architecture. The ease and speed of the digital age allow references across time, across disciplines and across cultures. Contemporary architectural interest in analog and digital history manifests itself in references. The language used to discuss these references often employs the prefix re- meaning to return to a previous condition or to repeat an action; recopy, redraw, refurbish, regenerate, reimagine, reinterpret, repeat, replay, represent, restore, revert, rewind, rewrite, etc. Since the sources of a project are numerous, its layers and complexities are rarely fully revealed and legible by the audience. At the same time, the origin of these inspirations demand acknowledgement but are rarely cited. FM X seeks to present an array of positions on the role that references play in architecture, past, present, and future.
