arq aims to act as an international forum for practitioners and academics by publishing cutting-edge work covering all aspects of architectural endeavour. Generously illustrated throughout, arq is edited with busy practitioners and academics in mind. Contents include building design, urbanism, history, theory, environmental design, construction, materials, information technology, and practice. Other features include interviews, occasional reports, lively letters pages, book reviews and an end feature, Insight. Reviews of significant buildings are published at length and in a detail matched today by few other architectural journals. Elegantly designed, inspirational and often provocative, arq is essential reading (and Continuing Professional Development) for practitioners in industry and consultancy as well as for academic researchers. Articles in arq 7:2 include: A research strategy for the built environment; Warsaw Embassy: competition review; Back to the future: the pragmatic classicism of Australia's Parliament House; Frank Lloyd Wright and Paul Mueller: the architect and his builder of choice; Design for change: Part 1 Diversified lifetimes.
