Comment on: Rory Olcayto is AJ's new editor
We will surely miss Christine, and wish her well in the new post but I am delighted that you will be her successor, and look forward to working with you over the next few years.
I am absolutely delighted to hear this news, and hope that the re-brand brings vast rewards.
Comment on: Number of women architects on the up
The news of a slight rise in registrations is of course heartening, but the core issue is retention of these architects. Attrition rates are still deplorable, glass ceilings still exist, and practices need to put in place people and work/life friendly cultures to retain the best employees. Guidance on it's way from RIBA.
Comment on: Architects welcome Gove's departure
I hope that the RIBA will encourage Nicky Morgan in her new role to take a fresh look as soon as possible - to make her mark before the election. The unfortunate school buildings legacy of her predecessor requires a sharp turn around. It would be sad if this new minister were to be given no time to achieve more than window dressing and electioneering.
Perhaps Mr Gove has actually come to his senses, and sees the considerable value in using great architects?
