Along with the new graphic elements, thisedition inaugurates a few new editorial features.First, there is “Profile,” which will take readerson a virtual visit with an architect, either athome or in the studio or some other location.Beginning on page 67 in this edition, it’s on thejobsite with Candid Rogers, AIA, who practicesin San Antonio. Second, the results of chapterdesign award programs have been separatedfrom the news pages in favor of a new sectiondepartment called “Recognition” that starts onpage 18. Third, and this is a more global change,there will be a greater emphasis placed on individualarchitects and other allied professionals.The close-up of Frank Welch, FAIA, out front ofthis edition denotes that new direction. However, photos of architecture will not completely disappear from Texas Architect’s cover.
