2ha is a magazine interested in the suburbs.
Last year, we ran a successful Fundit campaign which provided us with the means to publish our first #6 issues. Since then, we've engaged with architects, artists and academics to disseminate exclusively written or unshared work that both examines and reimagines the spaces which make up our suburban landscapes.
Each issue is formatted in order to explore the phenomenon of suburbia and its relationship to a particular field of study. So far we've covered subjects such as photography, public space, history, language, and typology. Our aim is to ultimately develop a body of work which may be read individually or as a single piece of investigation.
We feel there's still a few more topics worthy of investigation - over the next 12 months, we plan to produce four new editions, on a quarterly basis, in accordance with the following outline of themes and publications:
#07 Suburbia + Cinema
#08 Suburbia + Modernism
#09 Suburbia + Sport
#10 Suburbia + Capital
To our existing subscribers and purchasers – We'd like to thank you again for your support. Without your initial funding none of this project would have been possible. We hope you've enjoyed the last year's worth of publications and that your interest in 2ha continues.
To our potential funders – We hope that 2ha might be the kind of magazine you'd like to read. If you'd like any further information about our previous issues please visit our website at 2ha.ie. Or should you have any queries, please feel free to get in touch.
For our second year of publishing we're planning on producing a bigger magazine with 50% more pages. We're also seeking out some new collaborations. For example, SET collective will be editing/designing a special pull-out supplement for issue #07, while Docomomo shall be handed the reigns for issue #08. In addition, we aim to develop a more global reach, and hope the range of our contributors shall reflect this.
All of the money raised will go towards the production of 150 copies of each issue.
