What are other architects in the U.S. and around the world talking about today? You can find out by subscribing to top-ranking architecture blogs.
We’ve pulled together 5 disparate examples that touch on architecture imagery, life as an architect, products for architects, sustainable design, and more to inspire you.
Biber is where you’ll go when you want to get lost. It’s a website and a blog rolled into one with layer after layer of topics such as sketches, words, and “100 Ideas.”
Scroll through the pages, and you’ll find striking imagery, sometimes with a brief comment and other times, with an engaging essay. There’s even an “8 Seconds with Michele” interview with the former FLOTUS, Michelle Obama. It’s operated by Biber Architects, based in NYC. People, buildings, animals and the whole world are on display.
#2: THINK | ARCHITECT
Delve inside the mind of architect, Lee Calisti, at THINK | ARCHITECT. Each week, Calisti posts about his life as an independent architect, his personal experiences, and the unusual experience of being an “architect’s architect.”
Calisti muses about books, education, projects and personal reflection on his past, present, and future. This is the genuine article, the diary of an architect. It’s something you’ll want to read because you can probably relate.
#3: A Daily Dose of Architecture
A Dose of Architecture features architecture imagery from around the world. Each “Archidose,” as he calls his posts, has brilliant photos and a bit of newsy history about the building in question.
NYC architect and blogger, John Hill, talks about books that inspire him, new design that makes him happy, and old buildings that make him think. This blog is less of an introspective journey and more of a shared experience. He loves architecture, and can’t wait to tell you about it.
For the green building lover in you, Treehugger is packed with relevant topics for sustainable design and living. It’s not strictly an architecture blog. They call it a “one-stop shop for green news, solutions and product information.”
Who are “they?” A group of designers, editors, artists, writers, architects and tech experts from around the U.S. and Canada. If it’s moving and shaking in the sustainable living and design world, Treehugger has probably already researched and blogged about it.
#5: Section Cut
Section Cut is a blog of blogs. Or rather, it’s a catalog of reference material, tools, products, materials, gadgets, and blogs selected for their relevance to the architecture community. If you need a tutorial, are looking for a good book or want to find more blogs to follow, Section Cut makes it simple. It’s also a play on words.
Section Cut allows anyone to help curate the collection of resource links. Members submit suggestions, which are reviewed. If approved, the links become part of the collection, and the submitter becomes part of the curator family.
