Practice : Winter 2009
LETTERS TO THE PUBLISHER ] WINTER ' 09 LETTERS TO THE PUBLISHER "AS A LARGELY retired former editor/writer of several national magazines, I'm envious! How, I ask myself, can someone who isn't even in the publishing business manage to design, write and print such a handsome magazine as the BAC's Practice? Admittedly, I have a cheerleader's zeal in seeing the BAC prosper. But personal interest aside, I wish to congratulate the design/editing team of Practice for producing an outstanding publication. I admire it for its elegance and technical precision. Even more, I applaud this team for how remarkably well they are carrying out their editorial mission, which, clearly, is to convey to the printed page the essence of what is being achieved through the people and programs of a dynamic institution. at's saying quite a lot." William Houseman Hon. AIA, Portland, Maine Bill Houseman visits the BAC periodically to check in with the Summer Academy students and has recently toured Phase II construction at Boylston. "I WANT TO EXPRESS how impressed I am by the latest issue of Practice magazine. e magazine is a welcome resource for the BAC to provide to the architecture and design communities in Boston and beyond. Boston is privileged to have such an institution in the heart of our city. Your publication demonstrates that the BAC is dedicated to providing the highest level of education to its students and being a thought leader in emerging areas such as sustainable design, the application of new building technologies and innovations in historic preservation and rehabilitation." Sara D. Kelly Executive Director Boston Preservation Alliance "AS ONE WHO has been peripheral to architecture most of my life, I would like to o er you an appreciation of your magazine. I spent a short, but happy time as a sub-editor with e Architectural Record many years ago and my AIA-member son brings me copies of several East-Coast trade magazines when he visits, so I see quite a few these days. I like Practice. It is tastefully colorful and well-designed with interesting subject matter, covering the profession properly and with e ective design (except perhaps for the photograph captions which are far away and the type is so small as to make older readers need magni ers). Photography is well up to standard and well displayed---and I did admire Ms. MacLear's dress! e publication is a good read--- and now I'll put it back where I found it. John T. Weeks Hanover, N.H. John lists the following: " ½ years at Harvard GSD, Year or so with ' e Record,' O ce of Carl Koch, Architectural Accoustics at MIT" Publisher's note: We agree! e captions have been re-designed. "THIS WEEKEND I had a chance to go through the magazine in detail. I'm delighted with the content and design. Well done." Bernie Goba ' AIA, D.F.A. (Hon., BAC) An interview of Bernie Goba appears on page . PRACTICE 4
