Kieran Long has been named as the new editor of the Architects' Journal, succeeding Isabel Allen. An architecture journalist, critic and teacher, Long will take up his position on 2 July.
Long helped launch Icon magazine and has written for a host of architectural newspapers and publications. He is also the former deputy editor of Building Design and World Architecture magazines. Long said: 'I'm greatly looking forward to taking over this very special magazine. The potential is there to turn it into a genuinely critical journal with inuence on behalf of the profession and a critical role within it. I hope to bring a new generation of writers and contributors to the AJ, and involve the entire readership in a developing architectural discourse.'
