Compasses Magazine

Compasses quarterly magazine was set up in Dubai in 2007. Compasses Architecture & Interior Design was originally intended to become a unique showcase of Middle Eastern continuous transformation into a charming, dynamic and contradictory anthropized environment. In its pages you can appreciate new trends in urban planning and architecture. Compasses is now after ten years of “publishing” a media platform of contents and ideas targeting architects, interior designers, consultants, traders, design and architecture addicts and VIPs. Web portal, digital magazine in Tablet version and social media targeting over 15.000 architects and designers throughout the ME. A periodical newsletter distributed to the Middle Eastern community in a space within the top exhibitions where you can find the magazine and meet the team. The evolving story of Compasses sees in 2016 a new scientific director, Andrea Pane, who is professor of architectural conservation at the University of Naples Federico II. The new layout of the magazine keeps the former base enhancing the scientific contents with a specific section dedicated to longer articles as essays and papers regarding the main topic of each issue. The latest editorial board is composed of many academics and professionals in the fields of architecture, planning, conservation, design, based both in UAE and Italy. Compasses is moving forward.

Not a commercial magazine, not a periodical mag but what can be better defined as a “technical & trendy book” where a selection of projects, ideas and innovations from the world are published – where architects from Dubai, UAE and the GCC countries can find the perfect Media for those living and working in a developing area with a view to the future and with a strong influence from both Europe and the rest of the world. Projects from Europe, America, Asia and the Middle East, new Ideas, giving space to possible future plans and to the latest trends. High quality illustrated printed magazine, digital media and events targeting the right person: a professional, living in the area, interested in projects from around the world , part of the community of architects and interior designers working in the region and from the region, open to new ideas, use of different materials, looking for new international contracts services. The market continually changes – we follow it – showing it to our target.
