Arabic Gate for Architectural news has relaunched again in new look and updated design. Started in 2009, this portal is the first and only online media resource in Arabic language, dedicated to the empowerment of the Arabic speaking visitors (both professional and non-professional) with latest international architectural news, echoes, vogue, and trends.

In 2010, it was awarded the Royal Kuwaiti Salem Al-Subah Award for best media project in the Arab World. In addition to the wide variety of sections raging from news of design and products to latest updates on competitions and massive projects, the website had added two features that are showing in double language - Arabic and English. The first feature is the Directory of Architecture that aspires to collect the architectural data from around the world and be a forum where investors and architects can communicate and claim more business in the upcoming fruitful Arabic market.

Hence, the Directory is composed of five sections: Architects Directory, Universities Directory, Companies Directory, Building Material Directory, and Luxury Director. At the Directory investors, producers, and professionals can create their profile and present themselves and products to the promising Arabic Market and the whole world within a specialized environment and be shown on the main page of the website. This means creating a platform for international companies and producers, architects, and universities to present their expertise to the Arab world in a unique comprehensive way of introducing and exchanging talents, thoughts, experience, products, technologies, and projects.

The second bilingual feature is the Architectural Initiative where the recent initiative for Rebuilding Destructed Cities was launched with an opening enlightening article from the renowned British philosopher Roger Scruton. The initiative invites the world intellects and architects to present and contribute their visions on how to rebuild our destructed world due to natural and man-made disasters, such as the recent wars in the Middle East, and to have a role in creating a better world for humanity.

Arabic Gate for Architectural News set a double-sided goal; upgrading the Arabic content and promote thought and architecture through keeping the Arab world updated with most recent advancements in architecture as an art, science, and business: design, planning, décor, materials, thoughts, and latest trends. And the other is to create a bridge between the western and Middle Eastern disconnected worlds, in the various areas of built environment; through maintaining an open gateway for international companies and professionals to enter the Arab world and present their state of the art insights, products, and technologies.
