Former Loeb Fellow Cathleen McGuigan Named Editor in Chief of Architectural RecordMay 02, 2011
McGraw-Hill Construction announced to staff members today that Cathleen McGuigan, the longtime Newsweek architecture critic and arts editor, has been named editor in chief of Architectural Record, the nation’s leading architecture publication for more than a century. The announcement comes three months after Robert Ivy stepped down from the post in order to head the American Institute of Architects.
“It’s obviously a great honor to be asked to lead Architectural Record given its stature in the field,” McGuigan says. “It’s a tremendous opportunity, and a challenge, too.” She notes that the magazine, established in 1891, has many assets, including a long history, a loyal readership, and a highly respected staff. Under her management, she expects to facilitate an “evolution” rather than a “revolution” at the award-winning, New York-based publication. Read the full article.
