Founded in March 2011, the magazine Palimpsesto is an initiative of the UPC’s Cátedra Blanca de Barcelona. The magazine is about contemporary architecture with the emphasis placed on learning, on the material and technique of project design, and on reflection as the three basic pillars of the profession of architect.
Its contents are organized around a series of open-ended sections, which lend it a flexible and dynamic structure yet one which also guarantees coherence. The magazine is aimed at architects, students, researchers and professionals engaged in the planning and realization of the work of architecture.
Published three times a year, the magazine appears in a paper and a digital version and contains original articles, interviews and projects. The articles to be published are selected by an editorial board consisting of two external reviewers, who keep to the standard protocols for serial scientific publications. The titles, résumés and key words are also published in English.
