A good new architecture mag from the States, that tries not to go for obvious content (so starchitects are thin on the ground). Much quality content on their website.
Consistentlt interesting since its beginnings in 2000, Architecture Week has building profiles, lively forums and lots more to ponder.
A trove of PDFs of this important magazine from mid 20th century Los Angeles, assembled on the occasion of the Taschen book’s release. You must register your email to view.
“It is difficult, maybe impossible, to understand a time that is not your own, to feel the excitement of the 40s, 50s and 60s if you were not a part of them. The World War II years and the post-war period were an energetic mix of culture and politics, and A&A was at the leading edge in architecture, art, music—even in the larger issues of segregation in housing and education and other manifestations of racial bias before they became codified as civil rights.”
American site into things modern and young. Not much print content but they do have podcasts, videos and a blog to make up for it.
May 2011 update: There are many back issues (older than one year) available to view at Google Books .
MIT’s architecture journal. Articles are only available if you pay or have access via a university :(
Good meaty articles – most from each issue are available on site. PDFs also available.
Great site and newsletter, but this lot too have a problem with people linking to them. So we won’t. You could try typing in metropolismag.com though.
I know some people who dead keen on this mag and pay heaps to get it air-freighted – now you can view the current issue after registering for free. What they say: “Modernism is a quarterly magazine about 20th-century modernist design. We range from the Wiener Werkstätte to the Bauhaus to Memphis and beyond, covering Art Deco, midcentury, pop and postmodern design.”

An online offshoot of the The Atlantic magazine, this website groups together articles urban.
“The Atlantic Cities explores the most innovative ideas and pressing issues facing today’s global cities and neighbourhoods. By bringing together news, analysis, data, and trends, the site is an engaging destination for an increasingly urbanised world.”

Online only. A bit quiet for the last two years, but still containing a large pile of profiles of architects.
