It’s AJ Small Projects time! One of the most joyful events in the architectural calendar, these awards celebrate the dynamic possibilities of working within modest budgets. You can view all 20 shortlisted schemes in this special issue.
We also feature building studies of Hall McKnight’s conversion of a disused basement at King’s College and Allies and Morrison’s mixed-use addition to the Sussex coastline.
In this month’s news features, we reveal that almost £300 million has been spent on designing the new Euston station for HS2, and take a look at how a Bristol-based group is successfully winning approval for new micro-homes in back gardens.
We also pay a visit to the Farrell Centre, which has just opened in a former Newcastle department store and aims to engage the public with architecture and planning.
The Secret Architect, the AJ Coach and David Grandorge share their thoughts in this month’s opinion, and our competitions round-up, sketchbook and Hellman round out this bumper edition of the AJ.
