News COVID-19 Update; From A+U and Shinkenchiku-sha (26.05.20)
Our Friends and Readers,
We find ourselves in a very unexpected and unprecedented situation recently. This troubling time has called upon us at A+U and Shinkenchiku-sha to work remotely as a safety precaution. Even as we do so, we remain fully operational and committed to providing you the very best of architecture content.
As of 1 April 2020, the Japan national postal service, Japan Post, has announced the temporary suspension of acceptance and delivery delays of mail items destined to various countries/territories.
