QUESTION: Architectural Practice

question / pregunta: 

what are the major trends in today's architectural practice?


As noted above in our site guidelines, our site endeavors to focus on the information needs of activists and independent journalists. We sometimes answer other questions loosely related to such endeavors, dpending on the time and inclination of our volunteers. But for general information requests such as this, we encourage folks to use the very wonderful site Ask Metafilter, which provides more reliable information than some of those other question answering communities out there.

If you feel that your question does fall within our site guidelines, please feel free to rephrase it so we can better understand how that is the case.

Although this question does not pertain to our mission, I suggest that for current trends in the area of architecture, you check out some of the main periodicals and magazines in the field. You can search Worldcat ( to see what libraries in your area may collect or index these magazines, or google the titles to find their websites (which may contain info about the articles featured).

I used the publication Magazines for Libraries to quickly find this list of titles, but you could also speak to a subject specialist librarian in architecture for more info, or peruse the collections/catalogs of libraries with strong architecture collections (like academic libraries with architecture schools).
