Oppositions was renowned for its critical approach to architecture and its commitment to exploring the relationship between architecture and culture. The journal's articles and essays covered a broad range of topics, including cultural theory, urbanism, postmodernism, and deconstructivism, among others.

Oppositions played a significant role in shaping architectural discourse in the 1970s and 1980s, particularly in the United States. The journal's critical and theoretical perspective challenged established architectural norms of the time and helped to establish architecture as an important field of cultural inquiry.

Oppositions published a total of 25 issues during its 11-year existence. The journal's editorial approach and content had a significant influence on subsequent architectural publications, such as Assemblage and Grey Room.

Today, Oppositions is recognized as one of the most important architectural publications of the late 20th century. The journal's legacy continues to inspire critical thinking and debate in the field of architecture and beyond.{{Categories}}
