l’Arca International

l’Arca International is the first magazine published in three languages (French/Italian/English) entirely devoted to the world of modern-day design. Architecture, design and visual communication are the focal points of every issue. l’Arca International is the result of a publishing project that began thirty years ago and which, thanks to the awareness and enthusiasm of its founders, has constantly updated itself through new content, columns, sections and contributions.

In 1986 Cesare Maria Casati, a designer, architect and follower of Gio Ponti and also the former editor-in-chief of Domus, set up the publishing house l’Arca Edizioni Spa and the magazine l’Arca in Milan. When in 1994 the editor met Edmond Pastor, an enthusiast and connoisseur of the world of architecture, it was the start of a brand-new publishing enterprise: the creation of the publishing and events management company S.A.M. MDO based in Monte Carlo. The first issue of l’Arca International came out in 1996, and in 2012 began to be published in three languages in one single edition. In its twenty-year history l’Arca International has stood out due to its open and conscientious vision, offering a free and objective overview of quality, innovation, research and experimentation by architectural designers in various countries around the world. Going against the grain of pre-established trends, preconceived visions or dominant styles, l’Arca International has now gained itself a privileged niche in specialist publishing of the highest quality, attracting a growing number of readers among professionals, architects, designers, business people and architecture enthusiasts. Distributed in Europe, French-speaking nations, Italy, United States, Korea, Japan and China, l’Arca International also appears at all the major professional shows and exhibitions.
