My old friend Richard Weston has a new post to add to his professorship at the Welsh School of Architecture: he is to succeed former AJ editor Peter Carolin as editor of arq, or architectural research quarterly as it is more prosaically called.

The journal has won plaudits since its launch in 1996, both for its content and its design, and is a genuinely interesting publication for non-academics. Carolin comments that the Welsh School excelled in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise and will provide a distinguished new home for arq; Cambridge, of course, did not excel, dropping a point from 5 to 4, and has lost its diploma school as a result.

It has, however, hosted the development of a high-quality publication, the current edition featuring: an examination of Tony Fretton's Warsaw embassy; an essay by Andrew Saint on Frank Lloyd Wright and his favourite builder, Paul Mueller; a review of the 1980 Federal Parliament House in Canberra by MGT; and a fine obituary of Cedric Price.

Try it for yourself.
