2018 THE VIRGINIA ARCHITECTURE MAGAZINE

 DEAR READER: 

 

The Virginia Architectural Magazine is happy to announce our new issue formatting, bringing quicker content to our readers through shorter yet diversified article styles. New content includes cartoons, satirical pieces, and columns of continuing series, along with our usual repertoire of longer in-depth articles. By moving to a rolling submission of five articles per issue release, we ensure steady, dependable content free of the constraints of an overarching issue theme, though themed issues will make return when content allows. We hope this new format gives our writing staff the freedom to pursue topics they find interesting, as well as encourages you, our readers, to check back regularly for updated content. Enjoy!
