Today the AJ has launched its new website
We’ve been working hard to transform theaj.co.uk for the better. Starting in the summer, we examined how our pages were read and digested, held workshops with readers and looked at other sites for inspiration – including architects’ websites. Since then, it’s taken months of building and weeks of fine-tuning to make our site the most useful, intuitive and beautiful website covering architecture and the profession.
We’ve made some big changes to improve your experience. The site is cleaner, with larger imagery and it’s also responsive, allowing you to have the same great experience on mobile, tablet and desktop. But it’s not just about the digital - these changes reflect what you know and love in print. Just like in the magazine, content is now organised into the AJ’s five-a-day – news, opinion, business, buildings and culture.
So what will you find in each of the sections?
Our on-the-pulse news coverage is ordered chronologically to help you keep up with the latest project news, policy changes, contract wins, industry issues and gossip. You can also easily view the news by region – keeping you up-to-date with the projects happening in your area.
Here, you’ll find opinion pieces from the AJ’s award-winning writers in one place.
All the AJ’s building coverage is now found on the buildings page. We’ve made our in-depth building studies easier to read and to navigate through, while expandable picture galleries allow you see inside projects and look at details. You can also view projects by type and access the AJ Buildings Library for in-depth information on more than 2,100 buildings.
The latest insight and analysis you need to help you run your practice and make the right career moves, with sections for all the latest competitions news, expert advice, and vital intelligence on clients.
Thought pieces from leading writers and reviews of the latest books, exhibitions and events can be found in this section.
Plus we have a new events calendar to help you keep up-to-date with what’s happening in the architectural world, all the AJ’s video content in one handy place, and digital editions of all our print issues.
