Aim & Scope
Jointly published with the Royal Institute of British Architects, The Journal of Architecture assembles diverse views which affect the future of architecture and its reception in the world. It brings together views emanating from the profession, the industry, from the human sciences and cultural studies in a way which establishes a counterpoint. The editorial policy is critical rather than oppositional, outspoken and independent of entrenched interests. Topics to be covered include the interplay between cities, building, history and economic forces; problems of gender and ethnicity in architectual production and understanding; the powers, weakness and pre-suppositions of criticism; rewriting the historical canon of architecture, problems of interpreting cities; Eurocentrism and the rise of nationalism; the language and rhetoric of the constrction industry; the sociology and pathology of professionalism; power games and patronage; the legal and political relationships between infrastructures and superstructure; conservation of 20th century architecture; the rise of tourism; the uses and effects of the media; issues of greening and ecosystem; and the impact of computerisation. All submissions are refereed.
