Without doubt, the AJ represents one of the leading architectural magazines and informs and encourages debate at all levels of architecture and the arts. It is disappointing, given its meaty content, that the legal column by Kim Franklin does nothing more that fill the page of what would be better used as advertisements.
I am not interested to read about clerks, boys or girls collecting sandwiches and carrying paper from office to office when the litigious matters, surrounding and often driving the architectural profession, rank significantly higher on the professional agenda (AJ 25.2.01).
I am sure that AJ will continue to grow from strength to strength and perpetuate the spirit and enthusiasm of the built environment at large.
However, I would suggest that Franklin keeps idle thoughts to herself and tackles legal issues that continue to affect the core of our profession.
