AJ100 is back! Our annual deep dive into how the UK’s biggest practices are faring reveals that between them, they employ more architects than ever before. We drill down into the data to see how salaries and fees have changed since last year, what progress has been made on sustainability and the impact of rising energy costs on business performance.
You can read profiles and data for all of the AJ100 practices, and we reveal the winners of AJ100 awards in 2023. Pooja Agrawal, the recipient of the Contribution to the Profession award, talks to the AJ about her life in architecture and her pioneering work at Public Practice.
In the Culture section, we review Norman Foster’s retrospective at the Pompidou Centre (his sketches are also featured in our regular Sketchbook column), as well as the British Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale.
Also in the issue is our monthly competitions round-up, columns by the Secret Architect, the Coach and David Grandorge, and cartoonist Hellman takes aim at The Line.
