This quarterly publication acts as an international forum for practitioners and academics by publishing cutting-edge research covering all aspects of architectural endeavour. Fully illustrated throughout, Architectural Research Quarterly includes sections on design, history, theory, environmental design, construction, information technology, and practice. Other features include occasional reports, letters pages and an end feature, Insight. There is also the Architectural Research Quarterly Directory - a listing of specialist research and consultancy with an online, cumulative version which aims to provide a lasting and invaluable resource for all. Architectural Research Quarterly presents information in a way that is accessible to all and is essential reading for practitioners in industry and consultancy as well as for academic researchers. Reviews of significant buildings are written at a length which can no longer be sustained by other architectural journals. All articles are generously illustrated.
