306090 has emerged as an essential forum for issues of architectural practice and theory. Each volume addresses a pressing issue and offers diverse, cross-disciplinary solutions in the form of projects, ideas, buildings, and other media. Dimension (306090 12) reconsiders the act of measurement and definition in architectural design practice. Architecture in the past two decades has been transformed by the ongoing revolution in digital design and fabrication techniques. Dimension explores how the data, design, and invention derived from the act of measurement can help architects respond to economic, political, and environmental factors.

Solomon is the author of PA 26: 13 Projects for the Sheridan Expressway. He teaches architectural design at the University of Hong Kong.
