It may seem that the category «aesthetics» and the relevant image stereotypes and sensory feelings of a man can be related only to the field of artistic creativity and various works of art. At the same time the immense horizons of human activity conceal such areas of social activity in which the process of material production (connected with the creation of specific articles of consumption) may reasonably be identified as arts.
It is known that building and architecture are functionally inseparably linked with each other and together embodied in physical objects. These objects have not only aesthetical significance but also properties and values that make people around have stable emotional reactions, form outer image and entourage of everyday life of a man. Every day there are buildings and constructions around us. They define the environmental fullness of our habitat, visually dominate in the formation of large-scale images and standards of geometry, symmetry, compositional variety and color gamut of cityscapes. Probably architectural constructions are creative works that become the objects of mass attention of society most frequently. And when they are created in a format of true works of art, what an aesthetic fullness do they bring in our everyday life!
Technical progress is in turn literally weaved from creativity. Not only in the context of consumer’s significance of visual aesthetics of devices and mechanisms but also in the fact that the development of technology is based on dynamic scientific search and virtuosic technological decisions of authors of various inventions. Technical creativity is significant by its intellectual-innovational component and functional orientation on maximum easing of everyday life of people, full and comprehensive satisfaction of their vital needs.
Arts may be considered to be the most significant component of our life only in specific context. But areas of social life filled with creativity and developing just like arts – relying on talent and genius of prominent people – authors of intellectual masterpieces are really priceless.
Mission of the journal "GISAP: Technical Sciences, Construction and Architecture" is to be one of alternative and open ways of publication of author's studies in the field of Technical Sciences, Construction and Architecture. It is also a source of distribution of the advanced knowledge about creative formation and purposeful use of the artificial world (handmade environment of human life).
The journal is focused on publication of original creative studies of scientists from around the world based on innovative and progressive approaches of authors to problems under study. In this context "GISAP: Technical Sciences, Construction and Architecture" seeks for the greatest possible promotion of the progress of Architecture, Construction and Technical sciences and the related public knowledge.
Materials with expert confirmation of high scientific quality and creative originality are published in the journal. This circumstance predetermines our intention to publish "live" materials with comprehensive author's ideas and specifics of self-expression. We publish reports capable to enrich the reader's scientific outlook with new approaches, concepts, thoughts and views on various matters of Architecture, Construction and Technical sciences.
The journal is absolutely democratic and open for social interaction. During the selection of materials for publication we don't use formal qualification-based requirements or other restrictive factors. Works of a talented student and a prominent scientist can be both published in the journal. The main selection criteria: the author's originality, novelty, literacy and scientific reasonability (together it all characterizes the "scientific value" of the report).
Original studies of representatives of various countries and cultures can be published in the magazine. At the same time to ensure availability of reports for representatives of the international scientific community (where English is a traditional mechanism of international communication) English is set as the dominating language of presentation of reports.
Main materials can be published in the journal in other widespread (acknowledged as widespread) languages of international communication and also in other languages providing their understanding for a wide range of persons. In such cases materials must be accompanied by extended summaries (abstracts) in English.
The International Academy of Science and Higher Education and the open international expert community of the GISAP project sincerely hope that the journal "GISAP: Technical Sciences, Construction and Architecture" (taking into account the declared principles of its publication) will promote the development of related branches of science, mutual enrichment of national scientific schools of various countries with knowledge and experience, international ties and scientific cooperation in Architecture, Construction and Technical sciences.
