We believe that the Urban Development is a collaboration of the city residents, government, and business structures. This is why we see our Mission in creating a common communication field for various groups which interact in the Urban Space.
We engage the specific subject specialists, such as Architectural Engineers, Urbanists and Sociologist, and arrange the observations and researches of the Urban Environment. Experts those having the international experience have been invited, a local audience has been gathered for one discussion platform. In order to attract as much people as possible to the Urban Development issues, we publish the interviews, issue the articles on the Urban Studies, and start the special projects based on websites of the Media Partners and in other mass media.
