Platform, a publication of UTSOA

Platform magazine features thought-provoking articles of topical interest in the disciplines of architecture, architectural history, community and regional planning, historic preservation, interior design, landscape architecture, sustainable design, and urban design.

Platform strives to show how valuable architecture — broadly-defined — can be, and how its various aspects relate to our daily lives. Produced by The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture since 1992, we welcome your thoughts and comments. Please feel free to contact Managing Editor Pamela Peters.

Earlier issues and an article index are forthcoming.
