a+u Architecture and Urbanism Magazine


One of Japan’s leading architecture journals. First published in August 1925. Since its inaugural issue Shinkenchiku – New Architecture – has been endorsed by innumerable architects for its detailed presentation of contemporary Japanese architecture with high quality photos, plans and drawings. Over time the journal has developed a unique perspective, constantly communicating new trends in architectural thought and design. The activities of architects have expanded in recent years to encompass urban development, the environment and a host of other fields. Architects are increasingly making contributions to society in the broad sense by exploring the possibilities of modernity through architectural expression. The journal will continue to carefully consider such developments and visually convey the potential of architecture with photos taken and published by our Photography Department.
