What happened to the architect.lk web journal?

In a previous post I have mentioned about the Architect.lk web site which hosted the online version of "The Architect" magazine for sometime. It was doing a pretty good job which was not very SLIA ish. Now the website has been removed.

It turns out that BT options which prints "The Architect" magazine for SLIA ( BT options does the printing, laying out and rakes in all the profits from the advertisements and pays the SLIA a measly sum of RS. 30,000 for the articles which are compiled by the SLIA, which in most cases are written by Architects and Engineers) had put up the website without even consulting with the SLIA.

Sri Lanka needs a website which showcases Sri Lankan architects and their works, and Architect.lk was doing a pretty good job, but now we're left again with the crappy old www.slia.lk. What to do no?

Perhaps Speak to SLIA about bringing back the architect.lk with who ever doing it in proper way.
You too seem to be capable, why not fill in the gap, do your own site. May be offer 500,000 to SLIA and take over the magazine as well! :)
