Submitting Work for Crumble Magazine

The theme for issue 8 stems from conversations about systems of control and in particular how we work with and against these. To what extent we exert authority over our own actions, and to what extent we remain products of external influence, were key questions underpinning our discussions.

We are particularly interested in how action, movement, and dynamicity can begin to disrupt the controlled choreographies of our day-to-day experience. We invite you to challenge what is considered the norm, whether politically, visually, spatially, or theoretically, and re-interrogate our relationship with space, structure, form, architectures, and the city.

If you have an idea about how you'd like to contribute, please feel free to send us a short proposal of under 200 words to We will look over this and provide you with some feedback in order to promote its potential position within the issue.

The deadline for submissions is now the 26th of January ! You can submit a piece of work even without having sent in a proposal. This is just to offer some support if you need. Send all submissions to

Crumble is a collection of spirited, open-minded students and professionals keen to enliven the conversation about architecture. Based in Edinburgh, we’ve set up a bi-annual magazine that aims to promote interdisciplinary understanding of architecture and place. It provides a platform for people of all backgrounds and disciplines to publish articles and artwork that explore concerns about the future of our surroundings from a local to a global scale. The magazine gives those ideas reach within and beyond the university through public distribution. The magazine has an emphasis on engaging architecture with its real-world, wider cultural context and exploring how it can provide answers to current political and social issues. We are keen to involve students and professionals from as many disciplines as possible. The magazine has already involved current and former professionals alongside students of Architecture, Illustration, Product Design, Fine Art, Linguistics, History, Politics, International Development, Conservation, Landscape Architecture, History of Art, Urban Planning and English Literature.
