Eleven Editors – Architectural Design in the 1970s
Architects’ careers can rise and fall by the coverage they receive in journals. A journals’ potential to influence the architectural profession is of great interest, but some are more successful than others, and some are in more control of their own success.

Editors have the means to talk to those involved and those establishing themselves in architecture.
