for any faithful readers still clinging on, you can now find me at architizer, a big old heap of exciting architecture that comes with its very own editorial section, courtesy of yours truly. a few relevant points:
- architects join and upload projects for free.
- the open-source platform connects everyone from interns to pritzker prize winners.
- looking for design inspiration in the form of, say, cedar and glass houses in rural areas? oh, there’s a search.
- not to mention a bloggy thing with updates four times a day, including non-boring architecture and design news.
- stay tuned for a re-design of the home page, launching later this summer, that puts even more focus on the editorial content.
i’ll stop shilling now, but honestly: architizer is neat, it fills a vast hole in architecture content online, and i’m damn excited to be on the team. let us know what you think!

it’s been a couple of weeks ago now, but in the spirit of self-promotion we’re linking to a fun little project we did with todd selby on the occasion of his latest book launch (HERE). it’s no secret that the spaces selby photographs are fun and lived-in and pretty (and aspirational); what’s really cool is examining the personal stamps so evident on each and every one.
