This is a Website and Magazine Issued in Hong Kong and China
As the editor in chief Pingling Cheung said: ‘Just like a magazine, the world of architecture is both horizontal and vertical — this is why we connect them together.’ This architecture magazine and
Website, designed and edited by Hong Kong designer and editor, concerns the issues related mainly on the relationship between the architecture, environment, urban planning and human living conditions.
In traditions, magazine concerned architecture should be composed of building aesthetic and interior design issues. However, the concept of this magazine stresses on the relationship between human and environment as a whole which is opposite to the over development and rigid requirement of the contemporary Hong Kong and China societies. The so call ‘well being ‘ in the modern life for the citizens is being questioned in the direction of consumerism nowaday.
Moreover, one of the uniqueness of the innovative idea is the lack of advertisement as the main income of this magazine make it stands alone from commercial editorial drive.
