Architects77.com accepts opinion articles on any architectural, interior, design or construction topic for the online section as well as the regular newsletter that we send on a weekly basis. Published pieces typically run from 800 to 1,200 words, but we also consider drafts of any length within bounds of reason. All submissions must be original, exclusive to Architects77.com. You need to make sure that you never published the submitted article in any other printed or digital platform before.

Focus on the MENA region (the Middle East & North Africa). We are currently not interested in any country outside the MENA region. Personal or explanatory design essays, commentary on construction and development news events, reflections on architectural and design trends and more are all welcome. We’re interested in anything well-written with a fact-based viewpoint we believe readers will find worthwhile. We value the author’s time and effort. For each accepted article, the author will get an amount of money as compensation for their time and effort. The amount will be discussed after we evaluate your writing. In addition to this, the author’s name and profile link will appear at the end of the article.
