Aims and Scope

The journal aims to bridge up the disciplines studying the human habitat (from civil engineering to architecture and urban and territorial planning) and its sustainable development (including the relationship between man-dominated and natural systems), integrated analysis and territorial management from a joint theoretical and practical (focused on planning) perspective. The journal strives to embed high-quality artwork, especially for the two disciplines focused on graphical content - architecture, urban and territorial planning.
