2013 Internships at The Architectural Review
The Architectural Review is looking for enthusiastic architectural students and graduates to join its editorial team as part of its internship programme
The Architectural Review is the world’s leading international architecture magazine. Since being founded in 1896, AR has striven to place itself at the vanguard of architectural culture and production. Yet even through the long perspective of our own history, it is clear we have reached a critical moment for architecture.
AR Interns will join AR at this very exciting time in its history. The successful applicants will contribute to implementing and sustaining our ambitious editorial vision, working across both our print and online offerings.
The placements are for two-month periods, although we may consider shorter durations for exceptional candidates. Up to three months in architectural journalism can form part of your PEDR quarterly record, which goes towards your professional qualification as an architect.
This is an unpaid part-time position, but we will fund travel in and around London as well as expenses up to £10 a day for the days you are in the office. Successful candidates will learn an enormous amount about architectural journalism. You will work closely with the editorial team on specific self-starting projects, feeding content from around the world into both the magazine and the website.
Applications are open for May 2013 onwards including the summer university recess. Even if you cannot begin immediately, we welcome applications for future positions.
Interested candidates should send a CV and a short statement (200 words or under) about why you’d like to work at the AR, alongside up to five examples of your architectural work. Please email email@example.com or write to:

Greater London House
London, NW1 7EJ

WHAT OUR PREVIOUS INTERNS HAVE TO SAY…
‘My internship at the AR was extremely fun and rewarding. It was a steep learning curve, but it was made easy and enjoyable by the people we worked with. The office was a great place to have my first experience of magazine work, with a variety of day-to-day tasks and the chance to write both online and printed articles. Everyone was willing to help, and answer any questions.
It gave me a good chance to catch up on all the most recent developments in the architectural world (crucial for my course)and it was brilliant to be able to view London Design Week and London Fashion week from the ‘inside’!

‘I was really pleasantly surprised to be given so much significant work (feeling that I was making a real contribution to the team) and being trusted. It was great to be asked opinions on things and be allowed to take initiatives even though they were just small things but it made the job feel very real and gave a sense of pride that makes you want to do really well.
The job also allowed me to acquire a range of skills that I wasn’t expecting but which will probably prove very useful in the future.’
