ArchitectureMPS is a fully peer reviewed international open access journal. It was established in 2011 as the official journal of AMPS. It is published by UCL Press through the ScienceOpen platform. It publishes 12 articles annually on a rolling basis throughout any given year. It brings together over 200 academics internationally who support through reviewing, editing and administration.
As a fully peer reviewed international open access journal, Architecture_MPS aims to address the growing interest in the social and political interpretation of the built environment, from a multi-disciplinary perspective. The journal’s focus is critical and original engagement with the built environment but it explicitly welcome interdisciplinary perspectives.
The territory it seeks to explore is an overlaid terrain in which the physical, material and the environmental are critically examined through the prisms offered by other fields. The journal publishes articles from planners, architects, urban designers, sociologists, artists, urban economists and lawyers specialized in land rights, and aims to address the relationship of these disciplines with the built environment.
The journal sees the definition, debates and concerns of the built environment as intrinsic to those at the heart of other artistic, design, social, media, cultural and political discourses. All our publications are connected by a concern for how these different disciplines inform, engage with and respond to the built environment.
ArchitectureMPS is the official journal of AMPS. The organisation was founded with the intention of supporting academic research on issues in diverse fields as they relate to the design, planning and management of the environments we inhabit. On this basis, it has supported multiple research projects internationally and connected academics from over 30 countries in the fields of the built environment with scholars from the fields of media studies, political science, sociology, the arts and education across the world.
