Today the global network allows us to communicate indifferently with everyone and all around us originate paradoxically new, sometimes disturbing, borders: between cultures, religions, politics. The invitation is to get over, shift, delete or rewrite them, and make the boundary a land of encounters, a crossroad of cultures, languages and disciplines, fertile ground for new ideas.Learn More
To do this we need to move with courage and altruism, from the paths of known, to open the door to the wonders of the possible.
Boundaries is conceived to offer a critical view of the architectures that today faces, in many different ways, the challenges of the contemporariness and of sustainability intended as a balance between problems of cultural, environmental, economic and social nature, using the potentialities of the network, the ubiquity, the “absolute” time, and the democratic dimension that characterize it, and to give space and visibility to different knowledge and views.Learn More
Boundaries is a quarterly journal, with texts entirely in English and Italian. All articles are accompanied by notes and bibliography for further reading. The final sections “ideas” – some food for thought, crossing different disciplines – and “that was the year…” – addressed to the history of the 20th Century – will always be present.
From 2012 Boundaries enriches with eBook and digital publications and with interactive pages on the major social media.
More recently, the activities of Boundaries are extended with the promotiion of conferences, workshops, design competitions and exhibitions.
The excellent quality of Boundaries, and the innovative design make Boundaries a unique and very special publication, with a high scientific standard.Learn More
All that without public funding, our goal and our support are our readers.
Boundaries is a review founded and directed by young researchers, architects, urban planners, designers, historians and geographers from all over the world: together we link four continents. Our hope is to reach the most different points of view, not to reconcile the opposites, but to enhance them as a value, to enrich the dialogue.
From 2012 to the editorial board and the panel of blind reviewers are assisted by an international scientific committee.Contacts

What They Say About Us

Boundaries seems to me to be the publication that has most consistently recognized this phenomenon.Prof. Hans Narve Skotte, Norwegian University of Science and Technology
