Architecture Research

The Architecture Journal is an independent channel for free thinkers and practitioners of architecture. It is intended to facilitate the systematic development of the scientific body of knowledge in the field of architecture. New editions are issued with articles designed to offer perspective, share knowledge, and help you learn the discipline and pursue the art of architecture.
