In its first edition, P.E.A.R. presents work centred on the themes of Copy and Duplication. These themes could be said to be central to architectural discourse and design, whether in the exploration of modular construction systems or in musings on architectural styles and their origins. Presented in this first edition are a series of varied and complex readings of copying and duplicating in relation to contemporary architecture. Included are responses that stem from the disciplines of urbanism, theory, photography and contemporary art. The fanzine includes work from AOC who present a toolbox of copy and duplication; Photolanguage explore the uncanny effect of stereoscopic photography while recording a newly constructed landscape outside of Malmo in Sweden and Pablo Bronstein presents two designs for a Grand Parterre outside Tate Britain, which consider notions of role play in the design of architectural space.
