AJ is rightat 'home' with Masters of Building

  • Comment
LETTERS

Prior's Home Place in all of16 pages with lavish photographs and Cruickshank on top form congratulations on the full return ofMasters ofBuilding!

It was a bold experiment when started in the 1980s by former editors Carolin and Cruickshank,proving unexpectedly popular among busy practitioners as a respite from the necessary diet oftechnicalities,news and comment.

Sadly,it was allowed to fade away under the pressure ofrecession.It gave the AJ academic authority and a longer range, making it worth keeping on the shelves for years,not weeks.The MOB studies are classics oftheir kind,often providing the most detailed source available,more informative even than specialised monographs.By commissioning them and disseminating littleknown examples to such a wide audience, AJ permanently advances our understanding of architectural history.I hope this Renaissance will prove no mere flash in the pan,but will herald a regular series.

Peter Blundell Jones Professor of Architecture, University of Sheffield
