Faktur: Documents and Architecture, a journal that celebrates research as the source of architectural imagination. Faktur responds to the concerns of an emerging generation of architects, and aims to bridge the distance between practice and academic scholarship. In the last decade, the field of architecture, its agents, and its audiences have evolved significantly.

Protocol: is an interdisciplinary and independent platform for current discourse on the subject of architecture -- freely following the concept: architecture in context. The independent student magazine was initiated by students of the architecture programme at the Berlin University of the Arts.
