After Zero!? reminds me very much of another Volume After Zero. Coincidence or copy cats?

Hey Edwin!
I think zero - zero energy, ground zero - is in the current architectural publishing ether, so i think this is coincident though unfortunate. Either way, congrats on your Zero issue.

it's in the air for sure - all critical minds are searching for what to do with all the rhetoric around sustainability, which is predominantly captured in mere targets and percentages - so let's wait and if a third publication emerges with the same title. should be fun :)

though we might have to wait for a new 'zero moment' from which a new 'after zero' can emerge. though it is hard to outdo this current zero moment.
