The Society's principal publication is Architectural History. Published each autumn, this is one of the world's leading periodicals in the field. The architecture of the British Isles has always been one of the particular strengths of the journal, but there are no geographical or chronological limits to its range, which continues to expand. All issues of Architectural History from three or more years ago are available for consultation on-line through JSTOR, which is free through subscribing institutions. All members receive the journal.
The 2013 volume includes peer-reviewed articles on: Francis Vernon and the early Royal Society; William Kent and Holkham Hall; Richard Bateman and Old Windsor; Neoclassical plasterwork in Ireland; Frank Furness and Henry Holiday; R.S. Wilshere's inter-war schools in Belfast; Internationality, CIAM and the MARS Group; MoMA's 1937 exhibition of British architecture; regional Modernity in twentieth-century Spain; Pilkington Brothers' HQ by Maxwell Fry and Jane Drew; post-war Belgian church building. A record of the 2012 Annual Lecture, on events and festivals in London, is also included. Contributors to the volume include Bridget Cherry, John R Gold, Alan Powers and Frank Salmon.
