ArchitectureBoston, a quarterly publication of the Boston Society of Architects, is undergoing a change in leadership. The founding editor, Elizabeth Padjen, is stepping down after fourteen years of service and Renée Loth, a Boston Globe columnist and formerly the paper's editorial page editor, will be taking command.
The current issue (Spring 2012) of ArchitectureBoston bridges the gap in this change of leadership. Appropriately enough, this issue called "Change" and is guest edited by David Hacin FAIA. In December, a number of young architects and other recent graduates were gathered by Nicole Fichera for a discussion, and I was happy to be included among this group.
We talked about the role of architecture in today's world, our own career plans and alternative modes of practice, and why architects talk so little about buildings. The discussion has been published under the title Wide Open: Young designers discuss their professional horizons and architecture’s future and you can also download it as a PDF here.
