The deadline for proposals is July 1, 2009 and the deadline for finished articles is August 15, 2009. Please send them to [email protected]

On Site is not an academic journal, but an independent magazine read by architects, artists, landscape architects, designers, geographers, students, historians and people. It covers culture, infrastructure, landscape and design. They aim for sophisticated ideas in accessible language. They like construction issues and theory, engineering and art, drawings and photographs, and enthusiasm and energy.
