Architecture and Culture journal

Architecture and Culture is a peer reviewed journal of the Architectural Humanities Research Association, highly recommended by academic staff and researchers at Newcastle University. The journal investigates the relationship between architecture and the culture that shapes and is shaped by it. Whether culture is understood extensively, as shared experience of everyday life, or in terms of the rules and habits of different disciplinary practices, Architecture and Culture asks how architecture participates in and engages with it – and how both culture and architecture might be reciprocally transformed.  It’s now available in full text from volume 1.
