SOM Journal 9 is the ninth issue in a continuing series which highlights conceptual undercurrents being developed at SOM. The Journals present a selection of SOM projects chosen by a jury renowned in the fields of architecture, art, and engineering. This process of review by jury is an endeavor unique to SOM in documenting external criticism of current projects through an unparalleled format for review.

This year's jury gathered to discuss SOM's recent work at the Maison de Verre, Paris, France, in November 2012.
