A10 Magazine – New European Architecture

I'm saving up for a subscription to this magazine, published out of Amsterdam. Here's a little of how they describe themselves:
A10 provides a concise and up-to-date survey of the latest developments in European architecture, from the Arctic Circle to the Mediterranean Sea. A10 is compiled and published by architecture critic Hans Ibelings and graphic designer Arjan Groot. It has a network of over 70 correspondents throughout Europe, from Ireland to Turkey and from Portugal to Russia. Thanks to this pan-European network, A10 is often the first to take notice of a new project or building.
From the thumbnails on the website, it looks great - some fairly wacky architecture, interesting content, good photography well presented in a handsome, clean design. 6 issues a year cost 42.50 euros, or $63.37.

Also available now is their 2007 yearbook: In this book A10 presents an overview of the latest European architecture, with an extensive selection of twenty five projects previously featured in the magazine. In addition it contains four long essays: correspondents from Croatia, Estonia, Poland and Portugal reflect on the current state of architecture in their respective countries. Edited by Hans Ibelings and Kirsten Hannema / 160 pp. / €39.50 ($57.55). – GF
