University of Westminster professor, Dr Lindsay Bremner, Director of Architectural Research, has been appointed as a commissioning editor for The Journal of Architecture. Dr Bremner’s experience across history, theory and design was regarded as demonstrating her as an academic of high standing.

Dr Bremner is an award-winning architect and writer. Moreover her work has been published, lectured and exhibited widely on the transformation of Johannesburg after the end of the apartheid.

Speaking of her recent achievement, Dr Bremner said:

“It is a great honour to be appointed a Commissioning Editor for the Journal of Architecture, which is one of the most respected peer reviewed academic journals for architecture world-wide.

I am particularly honoured given the University of Westminster’s long association with it. Allen Cunningham, one of its founding editors, was a former Head of our Department of Architecture. He was followed, as co-editor, by Murray Fraser, Director of Research in the Department of Architecture at the time. I look forward to continuing our association with the journal and working with other members of its editorial team.”

Dr Bremner has taught architectural design and theory of design at all levels. She has been invited as guest lecturer and design critic to institutions in more than ten different countries from around the world.

The Journal of Architecture is a bimonthly academic journal published on behalf of the Royal Institute of British Architects.

Dr Bremner’s role as commissioning editor will give her an active role in discussing the strategic development of the journal, as well as promoting the journal and the submission of high-quality articles and special issues for consideration.

The University’s Head of the Department of Architecture, Professor Harry Charrington has said:

“This is a great achievement by Professor Lindsay Bremner, and due recognition of her achievements by the Journal of Architecture, one of the foremost architectural journals in the world. It is also fitting that a Westminster academic should have been asked to act as a commissioning editor given the Department’s long history of involvement with the journal, as well as Andrew Peckham’s and James Madge’s anthology of its best articles, Narrating Architecture.”

The University of Westminster is one of the UK’s leading centres for the study of Architecture and the Built Environment, with twenty per cent of the research in Architecture and the Built Environment faculty judged as ‘world-leading’ and 40 per cent judged as ‘international’.
