Architecture Medias goal is to provide a broad range of essential information to design professionals in the building industry, and to influence the wider community to improve the quality of the built environment. To this end Architecture Media publishes:
Architecture Australia, the official national magazine of the RAIA
Houses, aimed at designers of houses and their potential clients
Artichoke, a professional design magazine for interior architects and designers
Landscape Architecture Australia, the official magazine of the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects
Architectural Product News, providing up-to-date information on building products
Architects Handbook, an easy-to-use desktop reference
Selector.com, providing detailed building product information online
Architecture Media also publishes a wide range of titles in New Zealand through its subsidiary company, AGM Publishing Limited, based in Auckland. AGM titles include Architecture New Zealand, Houses New Zealand, Prodesign, Progressive Building, Info-Link New Zealand, Landscape New Zealand, Urbis and Urbis Landscapes.
Architecture Media also hosts the annual Interior Design Awards, in conjunction with the Design Institute of Australia and Designex. In New Zealand, AGM Publishing hosts the annual Best Design Awards and Urbis Designday, both very successful annual events.
2007 was a year of consolidation for Architecture Media and AGM Publishing, with the emphasis on incremental improvement in the content and presentation of all titles. Work also continued on the integration of Selector.com into the business of Architecture Media and on the introduction of new computer and accounting systems into AGM Publishing.
Despite the challenges of a changing and competitive media environment, the future looks bright for Architecture Media on both sides of the Tasman, with a number of new publishing initiatives being developed to complement the existing strong stable of titles for design professionals.
