ANTA is a journal created for the exchange of ideas that serve to enrich architectural discourse. Periodicals that put forward sensible urban, architectural, and environmental approaches, or offer themselves as platforms for meaningful debate, are woefully few in number today.  

As we publish more issues of ANTA, we need your support to sustain the journal and the robust architectural dialogue it offers. You can help continue these conversations by purchasing past and present issues. ANTA will become as prominent and successful as the circle of people who read it and engage in its spirit of reasoned inquiry.  

Issues

  1. Vol. 5 (Spring 2023)

    In this issue: The fifth issue of ANTA continues its mission by presenting alternative arguments against prevailing attitudes that prioritize idiosyncratic design over tradition. The projects range from masterplans for new towns and neighborhoods to urban interventions, academic campus buildings, reconstructions of urban edifices, and new buildings housing cultural institutions. Essays cover topics such as architectural precedent, the impact of sympathetic reconstruction on urban spaces, and reflections on the manifesto for urban development in Berlin-Brandenburg. This issue also includes historical perspectives, conversations with industry professionals, critiques, and insights from voices of the past. ANTA remains a crucial instrument in promoting discussion and understanding of classical and traditional architecture.

    Orders placed after December 15, 2023 will not ship until January 2, 2024.
