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.

The Viseu Summer-Program Design Team, Summer 2001

In less than a month they developed with Jose Cornelio da Silva and Norman Crowe a realistic and functional project for the New School of Architecture of Viseu. The beautiful and sensitive urban project for the Architectural School ensemble was publically acclaimed and is considered favourably by the academic, political and clerical authorities for future realization!
