About 2A Magazine

2A Magazine is the Middle East regional source for information regarding architecture, design, and art. ‘2A’ intends to establish a polyphonic relationship with the professional, international audience and should therefore focus on structures that make this relationship possible within its most comprehensive form.

2A has always looked for new ways of looking at architecture and art, and has presented various themes, which have explored different dimensions of those fields. Understanding the significance of spirituality and other non-physical aspects of architecture, which have been neglected or in some places completely ignored, 2A is now focusing more on this theme, because we believe the future of architecture can be enriched if we incorporate the non-physical aspects into the physical designs. 2A as an international media in the Middle East wants to be a pioneer and promoter of this process.
