This ground-breaking quarterly 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. Reviews of significant buildings are published at a length and in a detail matched today by few other architectural journals. Articles in arq 6:1 include: The changing nature of the profession; Turner Centre, Margate: competition entry; Wren and the development of structural carpentry 1660-1710; Measure, metre, irony: reuniting pure mathematics with architecture; Involving the industry: the use of 'Request for Proposal' packages at Frank O. Gehry and Associates; (Against) Continental Drift.
