The AJ is the architects’ advocate, friend and trusted advisor. Serving architects (predominantly UK based) at all career stages, The Architects’ Journal brand delivers multi-platform access to the British construction & architectural industry via The Architects’ Journal in print, AJ.co.uk &, The AJ Buildings Library online and through our portfolio of awards and other physical events. The AJ brand has also firmly embraced digital channels, with more than 45,000 followers on Twitter, and 40,000 electronic newsletter recipients, and through the new AJ iPad edition, currently available to all AJ customers.
Established in 1895, the history of the The Architects’ Journal (AJ) is the history of the profession itself. AJ’s portfolio of products offer content from business news to building regulations, from building studies to product specification, and is directly useful to the practice of architecture.
In 2012 The AJ team was shortlisted for no less than seven editorial and design awards by the British Society of Magazine Editors, the International Building Press, Professional Publishers Association and MHP 30 To Watch awards. The depth of quality in editorial staff is one The AJ's key strengths, and which carries weight and authority with architects. When we publish something, it counts.
The AJ brand also hosts a number of networking event opportunities for each of our four prestigious awards. These reward design expertise at all levels of architecture, from the best Small Projects to the achievements of the UK’s largest architecture practices.
The AJ is bought by over 7,000 architects every week, read by over 29,000 people in the industry, and 30% are Director/CEO level.
"The content has always been accessible and appropriate, particularly the building studies. We often refer to them for precedents when presented with new projects."
Chris Brimble, Managing Director Arden Kitt Associates Ltd
