Rob Wilson has been appointed as the AJ’s architecture editor, taking over from Laura Mark
Wilson, an experienced journalist and architect, is a previous editor of Berlin-based online magazine uncube, and was the exhibitions curator at the RIBA from 1999-2010 having worked in practice in the 90s, and studying at the Cambridge School of Architecture.
He has previously written for the AJ and sister title The Architectural Review, and has lectured at Central Saint Martins at UAL and other leading universities.
Wilson said: ‘It’s a privilege to be joining a title that I have long admired and read from the outside. I’m looking forward to helping shape the magazine and website during such a rich period for British architecture.’
AJ managing editor Will Hurst said: ‘Overseeing and taking forward AJ’s buildings section as well as the monthly AJ Specification, is a tough gig requiring a deep knowledge of architecture and a range of different skills not usually found in a single individual. We’re delighted to have found someone of Rob’s calibre and experience, and to once again boast an architect on the AJ editorial team.’
Mark left the AJ earlier this year to return to practice, joining London-based ZCD Architects.
