Brits have done rather well in the American Institute of Architects' international book awards for 1998 (they like to do things early Stateside). Phaidon Press London, under the aegis of former aj scribe David Jenkins, won a Series Award for five of its Architecture in Details publications, one being Martin Pawley's account of the Future Systems Hauer-King house. Michael Wigginton's Glass in Architecture, also published by Phaidon, won the Professional Reference category. Phaidon is likely to expand its coverage of us architecture, I hear - if it can find some London-based editors who know what they are talking about. The quest has so far proved fruitless.
