of other social, cultural and political discourses. The territory it seeks to explore is an overlaid terrain in
which the physical, material and the environmental are critically examined through the prism of the cultural,
the mediatic, the social and the political.

Its focus is cross disciplinary and draws on the media, politics and the social sciences. It invites participation
from all sectors: architects, planners, policy makers, artists, academics, the public and community activists.
It functions as an open access platform for publication, a forum for debate through conferences and

information professionals, the repository offers up-to-date materials and listings for research.
