Washington, D.C.—Hanley Wood, the b-to-b media company serving the construction marketplace, late last week announced that it will launch a new magazine, Architect. Scheduled to debut in October, Architect will focus on information useful to practicing architects, including design and business expansion.
Architect (60,000-circulation), which will be launched with a companion Web site and will be announced officially at the American Institute of Architects show in June, will join the Commercial Group of magazines at Hanley Wood under Group Publisher Patrick J. Carroll. It will be published twice this year and then monthly in 2007.
Ned Cramer, who for the past four years has served as curator of the Chicago Architecture Foundation, has been named editor in chief.
Peter Goldstone, president of Hanley Wood Magazines, said in a news release: “This launch—and others to come—is Hanley Woods’ response to the explosive growth in nonresidential construction. Approximately 96 billion square feet of new institutional and commercial space will be designed and built between 2000 and 2030—as much as existed in 2000.”
