The AJ's new year's resolutions

  • Comment

Dear Reader: The AJ’s new year’s resolutions (in no particular order)

More extensive building studies

Starting in January these will include introductions by the architect, client and consultant accounts, detailed technical information, and a thorough critique of the project.

More focus on the business of architecture

That means more business news, more industry intelligence and smarter, more strategic advice to help you maintain a competitive edge. Oh, and more competition leads from all over the world.

A new section dedicated to the workplace

We want to help you thrive in the workplace, whether you run your own business or are in your first job. So we’ll bring you careers advice, the lowdown on new technologies, tips on how to master public relations, and marketplace insight. We’re also introducing a workplace ‘coach’ with tailored advice to your own specific queries.

A broader debate on architectural culture

A new culture section tasked with exploring the politics, the ethics, the aesthetics and the technologies that shape your profession.

More news analysis

Our award-winning news desk will explore the stories that matter most with in-depth reporting and expert opinion. Tell us what is concerning you — we promise to look into the stories with most requests.

A new feedback page in your weekly print edition

Once in a while we get a letter, and perhaps once a year we get a handwritten letter. The overwhelming majority of correspondence, however, is through email, LinkedIn, Twitter and web comments. We’ll reflect this engagement in the print edition with a two-page feedback spread every week.

This year we’ve seen our LinkedIn followers grow by 73 per cent to 33,875 at last count. Our Twitter account has an incredible 144,000 followers, while our Facebook likes have leapt by more than a third.

A renewed focus on our digital service

We’ll add more projects to the Buildings Library, reprogramme our iPhone and iPad apps so they update with new content each time you access them, and we’ll launch AJ on Android phones and tablets too.

A bigger, better AJ100

The Architects’ Journal is 120 years old next year. YES THAT’S RIGHT: ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY! And to celebrate this, for one year only, the AJ100 is the AJ120. If your practice has been on the edge of cracking the chart in recent years, fingers crossed — you might make it this time. Good Luck!
