About Architecture


Architecture (ISSN 2673-8945) is an international open access journal on architecture. It aims to provide an advanced forum for studies related to architectural research, including architectural design, architecture pedagogy, built environment, landscape architecture, urban planning and design, visual culture, and artistic practices of architecture. Architecture focuses on studying the intersecting spheres of academic research and design practice of architecture, discussing new design strategies, form, and technology to advocate new aesthetics and new culture through introducing and promoting the most recent practices of architecture. Architecture is open minded towards creativity and “out of the box” thinking.

Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. For theory papers, full details of proof must be provided so that results can be checked. For experimental papers, full experimental details must be provided so that results can be reproduced. Additionally, electronic files or software regarding the full details of the calculations, experimental procedure, etc., can be deposited along with the publication as “Supplementary Material”.
