Architectural Digest Open Call

Architecture & Interiors


Paige Rense, Editor-In-Chief of Architectural Digest,
has always found creative inspiration from the books she reads and the places
they’ve taken her. So when Paige was shaping the editorial direction of
Architectural Digest she invited distinguished authors and playwrights to
write features that would inspire others.  Authors such as Kurt Vonnegut, John
Irving, Aurthur Miller, Gore Vidal and more have contributed to Architectural
since the 80’s.

Now Paige is looking for inspiration from the non-pros,
starting with an open audition in New York. The September issue of Architectural Digest will hit newsstands
starting tomorrow.  The Architectural  Digest Open Auditions will be
announced in the letter from the editor.
