An Architecture graduate from London Met has been appointed the new technical editor of professional regular journal.
Date: 17 January 2019
Fran Williams, a RIBA Part 2 Architecture who graduated from the Cass in 2017, has just begun her new role at the Architects Journal (AJ), an architectural publication, as the new technical editor.
Williams’ showed her expertise when she claimed second place in the 2017 RIBA Journal Eye Line drawing competition. After that, she went on to be an architectural assistant for various architecture practices, such as Gort Scott, Jestico + Whiles and Sarah Wigglesworth Architects.
Speaking to the Architects Journal about her appointment, Williams said: ‘I’m really looking forward to developing my role at the AJ. My personal interest is in small-scale and community-led architecture.
‘I’d love to hear about any projects or practices that are up-and-coming – especially those with interesting technical challenges – as well as tip-offs on potential rule changes which may affect those designing and delivering today’s buildings.’
As technical editor, Williams will be covering all regulatory changes made within the architecture industry which affect practice, reporting on new technologies and materials available, and playing a vital role in the publication’s ongoing commitment to sustainability.
