There might be other references available on 'program' in Architecture, but this issue provided me with good overview of the discussions related to the subject since the modern movement. The focus is more on the philosophical stands of Rem Koolhaas and Bernard Tshumi and the subsequent re-emergence of 'program' as a form making device since 'Form Follows Function'. The issue features interesting realization of ideas through projects such as Knowlton Hall (unprogrammed space), Tulane University Center (Permeability) and Taller de Chile (inbetween space as developed by the Smithsons). At the same time, it deals with more theoretical issues through essays such as 'Programming After Program: Archizoom's No-Stop City' and 'Notes on the Adaptive Re-use of Program'. There are many other essential texts to help understanding the discussions on the subject, so it is a must read for students and anyone who has not been fully introduced.

I have been slowly collecting all of the praxis books and these are just great reference materials for students and practicing architects alike.

Excellent journal for each architect who wants to broaden his knowledge in "new" design strategies. Tschumi vs. Koolhas interview speaks for itself. Short "manual" (at the end) for programmatic design is absolutely useful for students, funny, yet clever.

Praxis is a more intense and less fluffy version of other architecture/design magazines. A great read!
