EcoWebTown is a new e-magazine dedicated to sustainable design in urban planning and architecture. The magazine is promoted by the research group active in the University of Chieti-Pescara at the SCUT Research Centre (Sviluppo Competitivo Urbano e Territoriale), but programmatically involves the most engaged researchers community, that are creatively facing the themes mentioned above. The review inaugurates a work of critical excavation on positions which are influential on the thought behind projects for sustainable city projects, probing the meaningfulness and the utility itself when confronting contemporary challenges.
The aim is to introduce and enhance good projects that contribute to evolve the architectural and urban culture, but also to distance those solutions too easily defined sustainable, that often relying on the ambiguity or confusion of some currently definitions.
Μore than a traditional magazine, EcoWebTown would look like a cultural network that makes itself recognizable because of the critical and creative attention that dedicates to the sustainable design of cities.
The e-magazine GreekArchitects.gr (GRA) first appeared on the Web on March 2002 aiming at covering an info void regarding architecture in Greece. The goals as well as the general philosophy of its web site follows the honest approach of presenting and commenting on architectural issues on the basis of respect and objective observation.
GRA does not intend to stirring up controversy regarding the never-ending “theory battles” of different “schools” οf architecture, nor mechanically reproducing those theories already worn by repetition. On the contrary it aspires to locating and systematically dealing with subjects of theory and practice that are addressed by architects today, as well as to giving voice to their comments.
ARCHISEARCH.GR investigates, selects and presents projects that deal with various aspects of architecture throughout the world. Taking the role of an unconventional research tool, it seeks present and future cultural evolution through architecture, as well as the possible exchange with design, art, graphics and green/eco design. It poses questions aiming to provoke new thoughts and approaches. It has a vivid interest in experimentation and validation, whilst it underlines the wealth that lies within the coexistence of diverse ideas.
It focuses on issues relating to the built (and often unbuilt) architectural context and its parameters; from the social benefits of a project and its contribution to the urban area, to its ambiance and construction materiality. It promotes the connection between society and architectural production and explores the ways through which architecture urges us to interact with the social and natural context.
