This magazine is aimed at all those people and institutions interested in traditional building, architecture and urbanism. Its articles are related to the theory and practice of these disciplines. Its objective is to promote the creation of places and buildings that are in harmony with the local culture and tradition and that are respectful of the environment and its natural resources. It also aims to provide a better knowledge of the traditional constructive cultures of the various regions of the world and, with it, a greater respect towards them that may contribute to their better preservation and to their continuity.
It is published annually online and all its contents are freely available. It is a bilingual publication, with all its texts in English and Spanish. It includes both original academic articles, peer-reviewed and evaluated following the usual protocols of scientific journals, as well as other informative but more visual articles, news and reviews, with the ultimate goal of bridging the gap that continues to exist between the academic and professional worlds today. For this reason, it also gives voice to the masters of traditional construction and there is particular focus on their crafts.
It is organized by INTBAU Spain and the Rafael Manzano Prize for New Traditional Architecture, thanks to the generous support of the Richard H. Driehaus Charitable Trust, through a donation to the Chicago Community Trust for the Richard H. Driehaus Charitable Fund.
