Welcome to our Ordinary issue. This issue seeks to explore the value of commonness and the everyday environment. It focuses on those elements that go unnoticed or that we take for granted, from buildings and objects to experiences and traditions. We look at the ordinary elements of life that are worth rediscovering and celebrating, as well as look ahead to what will become ordinary in the future.

Contributions by Jennifer Bonner, Alberto Campo Baeza, Deborah Fausch, Michael Hirschbichler, Linda Just, David Karle, Tom Keeley, Steven Montgomery, Norman Kelley, Michal Ojrzanowski, Ordinary Architecture, Antonio Petrov, Regina Pozo, Rojkind Arquitectos, Henry Shukman, Joshua G. Stein, and Zenovia Toloudi. Cover lettering by Nick Adam and cover photography by Ross Floyd.
