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. Architecture_MPS also functions as a platform for publication but, uniquely, also operates as a resource repository. Run by librarians and information professionals, the repository offers up-to-date materials and listings for research.
