KATARXIS is an international web-zine dedicated to New Traditional
Architecture and Urbanism. It is the official site of the visions and strategies promoted now by many professionals and associations in their
formidable endeavour: -- to contribute to the building of the modern world by referring to time-tested principles
of beauty, comfort and permanence.
KATARXIS is evidently the portal to a large international
community which shares common visions and goals based on the potential of virtue and efficiency of tradition.
