On behalf of the ACSA Board of Directors, I welcome Professor Elysse Newman to the role of TAD Executive Editor. We are pleased that Newman will bring her extensive architectural research background and insights to the role. Newman assumes Editorial leadership of ACSA’s newest journal from Marci S. Uihlein, who along with an accomplished editorial board, has enabled TAD to break new ground as a venue for transdisciplinary architectural scholarship bridging academia into professional and technical realms with architecture’s other subdisciplines. As the journal moves into its 5th year of publication, we look forward to Elysse continuing this innovative path.

TAD is a peer-­reviewed, international journal dedicated to the advancement of scholarship in the field of building technology and its translation, integration, and impact on architecture and design. TAD is published by the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA), a nonprofit membership association dedicated to leading architectural education and research. A nine-person Editorial Board is responsible for the content of the TAD journal and its website. TAD’s larger Advisory Board brings together leaders within the architecture, engineering, construction, and design fields. www.tadjournal.org
