Who We Are
Oz, the Journal of the College of Architecture, Planning and Design at Kansas State University, is dedicated to the exploration of ideas in design through the publication of diverse responses to theoretical issues.
Each year students seek out essays and projects from leading practitioners, scholars and artists worldwide. The dialog enriches the staff’s education and the journal serves as a printed record allowing for expanded participation and debate for students, faculty, alumni and others.
Since its inception in 1979, Oz has received accolades and recognitions including two Douglas Haskell Awards for Student Journalism from AIA New York and numerous awards for graphic design and printing.
Oz is underwritten through gifts from our many friends—firms, individuals, foundations and professional organizations—as well as through the generosity of the Kansas State University Fine Arts Fee.
