Manhattan is shortly to get what it has always lacked: a regular architectural news magazine.The Architect's Newspaper - launched by AJ contributor and Archigram standardbearer Bill Menking, and co-founder Diana Darling - is set to hit the streets in the New Year.
It has two 'soft' launch issues this month and next, before starting a fortnightly publishing schedule in 2004.
Since the demise of Progressive Architecture in the US, and the comings and goings of various monthly publications, there has definitely been a gap in the market. As MoMA's Terence Riley puts it: 'A steady and reliable source of information is desperately needed.' The AJ salutes its American protosibling and wishes it well.
