50 Issues and Counting TA08.03.04_Cover_final.indd 1 TA07.1112_Cover.indd 1

As a long-time contributing editor and TSA Publications Committee member and with more than twenty-five years of tenure, I have had great fun working with five editors of Texas Architect: Larry Paul Fuller, Joel Barna, Vince Hauser, Susan Williamson, and Stephen Sharpe. Each has had his or her own editorial interests, and together they have shaped Texas Architect into the respected and stimulating professional journal it is today. Stephen is one of the longest tenured editors, with 50 issues to his credit, beginning with the Sept/Oct 2000 issue. As an architect, I know about schedules, deadlines, and deliverables, but somehow it still seems like magic when Stephen and staff deliver this publication to us every two months, on time. A consummate journalist, Stephen gathers the latest information and adds meaning, context, and analysis. His keen understanding of architecture and design, knowledge of the business, and strong relationships with TSA members brings depth to the words on the page. In applying his sensibilities to the stories of architecture in Texas, he brings comprehension and appreciation of Texas architects’ ideas and creations to all who part the covers of

the publication. During his tenure, he has elevated Texas Architect to a truly “professional” stature, attracting an ever-widening stream of talented architect writers to bring us fresh insights on the Texas built environment. His exceptional leadership has also helped to inspire a clean graphic design that further contributes to a sense of quality. This all sounds rather singular, but Stephen is actually a team leader, coordinating the energies of an always-independent, sometimes-fractious TSA Publications Committee, the far-flung contributing editors, the magazine staff, and numerous other professional contributors. How amazing and wonderful it is that all this comes together six times a year, each issue fresh and bright. Texas architects are justly proud of the elevated standing of Texas Architect and of our editor who keeps it there. We trust that a mere 50 issues is just getting Stephen warmed up for a much longer run. To show our appreciation, I ask that everyone who reads this send a Letter to the Editor so we can fill Stephen’s 51st issue with an over-abundance of praise (or at least honk when you drive by).
