FuturArc Journal | The Voice of Green Architecture in Asia
As of 2013, FuturArc is going bimonthly. This means there will be 6 issues a year, up from the current 4. The interest in Asia on Green buildings has picked up; with it our coverage increases so that you, our readers, can stay informed.
Helming the frontline of construction market information for more than a decade, BCI Asia has been bridging the gap between design professionals and suppliers in the construction industry. In collecting information and data over the years, the company has recognised early on the severe impact of building and construction on the natural environment. Thus, in 2006, BCI Asia started FuturArc Journal to advocate for architecture that demonstrates social responsibility and sustainability, as well as to generate discourse to heighten awareness among its research partners and clients.
The Journal’s content is developed along a specific theme in each issue and consists of the following sections:
•Main Feature – a reflection on the elected theme
•FuturArc Showcase – includes one or more projects to illustrate the feature
•The FuturArc Interview – a conversation with a shaper of ideas and doer of deeds
•Projects – features prominent projects in the region in line with the theme
•Commentary – provides in-depth discussions of issues relevant to architects today
•Readers can also look forward to information about latest products and technology, including coverage of conferences, design competitions as well as other architectural events in the Happenings and Products sections
FuturArc’s editorial is gathered by contributing researchers working in BCI Asia’s offices. They tap into brilliant minds in architecture and related professions in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. The Journal also has correspondents around Asia and the world to work the ground and report on projects and issues pertinent to Green building and design.
For bi-monthly titles please allow up to six to nine weeks for your first delivery.
