THE AJ HAS GIVEN IN TO FORM(AT) OVER FUNCTION

  • Comment
LETTERS

I have been encouraged by recent letters criticising the choice of building studies featured in the AJ.

A journal should report schemes of the highest architectural quality in terms of commodity, firmness, delight and context, that will inform and inspire the reader.

I fear the change of format has inuenced an editorial approach more suited to a magazine than a professional journal.

Richard Baker, Winchester THE LITTLE MAN WILLIAMS CREATES A BIG LAUGH Goodness, doesn't Richard Horden take Jan Kaplicky very seriously (AJ letters 09.11.06). I thought 'little man' Austin Williams' review of the new Future Systems book was very funny and well written. In fact, most of the office could be heard laughing out loud when they opened their copy. So it was far from a whole page wasted. Moreover, I suspect from his own letter that Kaplicky is an architect who lacks real confidence.

By the way, keep sending us the AJ. The emphasis on showcasing innovative small projects that have lots of ideas but little money, like NORD's Eastend Sawmills or the Tolladine Centre, is very refreshing.
