ARCHITECTOUR.NET how to see Contemporary Architecture
AR is a portal on International Architecture of the 20th and 21st centuries that documents works that have been built and are still existent.
In short, it can be defined as an in-depth, informative and interactive investigation into modern and contemporary building, structured in a complex filing of significant works, with particular attention on the aspects of technical, linguistic, structural and social innovation.
In illustrating excellent applications of contemporary architectural innovation, AR manifests their technical and expressive potentials. AR indeed intends to be a place of encounter and verification of the fruit of study, the demands of the profession, and the offers of firms. The “Europe Workshop” and the works of these past twenty years are the privileged fields of investigation.
AR also intends to be an orientational tool in the mare magnum of specialised information on architecture, both on paper and not, whereby users of architecture can pass from “sight navigation” to the use of an optimised “navigational instrument”, capable of orienting them through the sea of knowledge and documents up to the hands-on experience with the work itself.
Seeing becomes knowing with the mind’s eye, seeing in the sense of visiting, embarking on a journey to the work itself.
AR is therefore a new, effective way to get to know and promulgate the great works of modern and contemporary architecture in order to discover or personally experience the beauty, dignity and innovative strength of the architecture of the recent 20th century and of the nascent 21st century, which carries and develops the former’s heritage, on its way towards the architecture of the Third Millennium.
Witness today the birth of the monuments of the future: see/know the monuments of tomorrow, today.
