Mark magazine è una piattaforma per la pratica e la percezione dell’architettura, all’alba del terzo millennio. Dal suo lancio nel 2005, la rivista ha dimostrato di essere una pubblicazione fuori da quelli che sono gli schemi classici delle riviste di settore: tempestiva, moderna, visuale e con un occhio di riguardo alla creatività. Mark ha una prospettiva internazionale, punta i riflettori su archistar e nuovi talenti.
