Making headlines in architectural history magazine

27 January 2016

A feature by Kellogg Fellow Steven Parissien  is the cover story in a new architectural history publication.

Steven Parissien, who is Director of the Compton Verney gallery in Warwickshire, has written about the landscape architecture of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown in the latest edition of The Architectural Historian magazine. You can download Steven’s article here (Pdf).

The magazine’s founding editor, Kay Carson, is a Kellogg student currently studying for a DPhil in Architectural History, having recently graduated from Oxford with an MSt in the History of Design. In addition to editing the magazine, Kay has contributed reviews of exhibitions featuring architects Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Andrea Palladio.

Kay said she was delighted to have been the founding editor. “It has been very exciting to build a publication from the beginning,” she said. “I think the magazine definitely provides a great opportunity for architectural history students to contribute articles in different styles.”

The full-colour magazine was launched last summer by the Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain and is free for members, it is also available to read online here.
