AJ 14.12.17: The year in review, the year ahead


As we near the close of another year, the final AJ of 2017 looks both back and forward. We review the biggest news stories of the last 12 months, while leading figures in the profession make their predictions for the year ahead.

We preview five standout projects set to complete in 2018 – and ask you to identify five that were built this year in our Spot the Building quiz. We also put the spotlight on five people set to make their mark in the architecture world in 2018.

PLUS Bake-off contestant and architect Tom Hetherington gives us a special seasonal recipe, and cartoonist Louis Hellman celebrates 50 years of lampooning the profession.
