Since 2014, CARTHA has provided a platform for critical thinking on architecture and society. Founded by an international team of architects and designers, it aims to bridge the gap between theoretical and practical approaches to contemporary architecture. Each year, CARTHA initiates research and publishes four issues on a topic in its online magazine, which are then brought together in an annual book.

In 2016, CARTHA collaborated with the German Pavilion at the International Architecture Exhibition of the 2016 Venice Biennale. Titled Making Heimat: Germany, Arrival Country, the German Pavilion explored the challenges and potential of the recent influx of refugees to Germany has posed for architecture and urban design, and contributions to CARTHA further reflect on this topic. Contributors include, among others, architect Arno Brandlhuber, critic Marina Otero Verzier, and design studio Urban ThinkTank, and the book also features interviews with Iverna McGowan of Amnesty International; David Harvey of Graduate Center, CUNY; Saskia Sassen of Columbia University; and Giovanna Borasi, of the Canadian Centre for Architecture.
