Renée Loth

Congratulations to former Boston Globe editorial-page editor Renée Loth, who’s been named the new editor of ArchitectureBoston, published by the Boston Society of Architects.

Loth, who still writes a column for the Globe, will replace Elizabeth Padjen, a professional architect who’s been running the magazine for the past 14 years. (I had the pleasure of writing an essay for Padjen a few years ago.)

Loth is one of the city’s most accomplished journalists, and this fall will be a Goldsmith Fellow at Harvard’s Joan Shorenstein Center for the Press, Politics and Public Policy. She’ll assume her new post at ArchitectureBoston in January.
