Catherine Slessor has left The Architectural Review (AR) after 23 years on the world’s leading monthly architecture magazine
Slessor, who has been editor of publication for the past five years, started her writing career at the AJ as a technical editor in 1987 before moving over to sister title The Architectural Review in 1992.
She said: ‘To have been part of the editorial lineage of one of the world’s foremost architecture magazines has been an extraordinary privilege and I owe a huge debt of thanks to the stellar array of AR colleagues, contributors and co-conspirators who have illuminated my working life for so long.’
‘I shall miss you all very much but hope that our paths may cross again.’
EMAP’s managing director Richard Breeden said: ‘I’d like to thank Catherine for the dedication and vision that she has bought to the AR.’
AJ acting editor Rory Olcayto said: ‘Catherine’s wonderful writing and concise criticism has been an inspiration to many aspiring architectural journalists – including me - over the years.
‘Her work on both the AJ and AR has played a key role in shaping the modern era of architectural publishing. All of us at AJ wish her the very best.’
