The open book: inside The Architectural Review

The Architectural Review’s editorial team reveals how a 124-year-old magazine is made today as part of the Architecture Foundation’s 100 Day Studio – rewatch now!

The AR depends on its subscribers to bring you fearless storytelling, independent critical voices and thought-provoking projects from around the world. Consider a subscription today to wander freely around the world and through 124 years of architectural history from the safety of your home, or peruse our online shop for both the latest issues and copies from our archive

What role do magazines play in shaping architectural culture? Recorded on Thursday 29 May, the whole AR family got together to lift the lid on how the magazine is made: how we put together words and images, commission the right photographers and writers, and choose the buildings and topics we write about. This event was part of the Architecture Foundation’s 100 Day Studio, a daily diet of online lectures, interviews, building tours, panel discussions and quizzes, held for 100 weekdays from Monday 6 April to Thursday 27 August, in response to our current health crisis.
