Question for my readers

architecturfirm

Dear readers, I am looking to find architecture firms (or design firms in general) that managed to successfully incorporate a blog into their site. Do any come to mind? Would you mind to leave urls in a comment below? Thanks so much!

  1. I can’t find many if they exist. I run a very small office, 2-3 people, and have a website and generic wordpress blog, not very integrated I’m afraid. I think most architects have left the world of writing up to the academics.
    Very interested to see what responses you get.

  2. Madhouse, a graphics firm in Toledo, Ohio, has a blog. http://www.madmadmad.com/ – click on Madlove

  3. lovely ladies whose work is as delightful as they and their delicious blog

    http://www.frontstudio.com/
    http://lunchstudio.blogspot.com/

  4. Well , they do design and advertising, and you probably know them, but just to make sure WK London

    http://wklondon.typepad.com/

  5. Some great sites we’ve worked on with architectural clients who have really adopted the use of blogging to document their thoughts, inspirations and culture.

    Henriquez Partners: http://henriquezpartners.com/
    Their blog: http://henriquezpartners.com/archimemo

    As well as the use of a lot of blogs (on a per student basis) for the UBC School of Landscape and Architecture: http://www.sala.ubc.ca/

    Curious to find some other examples of architects who have adopted blogging!

  6. I’ve always enjoyed the blog run by Build out of Seattle. http://blog.buildllc.com/. Their Modern List of city recommendations is also pretty well done.

  7. Morphosis Architecture has a wikipedia type site that includes a news blog: http://morphopedia.com/news/

  8. Here’s one that’s been around for a while. Brennan + Company Architects in Baltimore has a blog:

    brennanarch.blogspot.com

    Their website is http://www.brennanarch.com

  9. A San Francisco-based landscape design studio specializing in contemporary and contextual residential projects.

  11. VIA Architecture has a great blog (I think it’s relatively new… started this year), but have really great content about Vancouver BC and Seattle, where their offices are located.

    http://via-architecture.blogspot.com

    http://www.twitter.com/viaarchitecture — they also have a pretty good following on Twitter

    I also enjoy Build Blog (linked to already).

  12. Blog is design integrated not technically…

    Dutch company from Tilburg

    http://www.freshheads.com
    http://blog.freshheads.com

  13. Maybe you’ll find some examples via the architect community http://www.architizer.com/

  14. I was following hoklife.com, but it seems to be boring slice of employees life- rather than design greatness in practice.

  15. We’ve got a kitchen design blog here at Johnny Grey Studios called Grey Matters. http://www.johnnygrey.com/greymatters/

  16. http://www.spiritofspace.com/

    These guys are like hedrich blessing 2.0

  17. Just here to second http://blog.buildllc.com/. I subscribe to several design blogs, but swissmiss and Build LLC are among the two I actually read regularly.

  18. My personal favorite is Michelle Kaufmann (@mkaufmann on Twitter) :: Her blog is fantastic.

  19. http://www.eastlakestudio.com

    we just started ours a month ago and it’s a slow process but we have some really great topics waiting in the wings right now!

  20. Alchemy Architects of St. Paul, MN, best known for their Weehouse, has an interesting blog at:

    http://www.alchemyarch.blogspot.com/

  21. http://supercolossal.ch/

    http://mjnealblog.com/

    Are a couple that I follow Miss Swiss

  22. What typeface is that?

  23. Favorite:

    http://supercolossal.ch/

    Sidney-based firm

  24. Oops, Sydney-based.

  25. http://www.dbarchitect.com/

    While they don’t necessarily have a blog they do have a Facebook page and a lot of personal energy in their website.

  26. I recently started to follow the following three blogs by architects :

    Slow Home
    http://theslowhome.com/

    100K House
    http://www.100khouse.com/

    Linebox Studio
    http://lineboxstudioinc.blogspot.com/

  27. Spain based architects ‘ecosistema urbano’ have a powerfull website, better than a blog, based on a comunity.

    http://ecosistemaurbano.org/

    And from Chile (southamerica) Durán Architects (D+) , who mix their work between activism, web 2.0, and sustainability.

    http://www.duranarquitectos.cl/

  28. I work for Walters-Storyk Design Group, we are an architectural acoustics firm specializing in recording studios–just up the road from you in Highland, NY!

    Here’s our blog:
    http://www.wsdg.typepad.com/

  29. This architecture and design firm runs purely from a wordpress blog
    http://www.matterdesignstudio.com

  30. There is a firm here in Denmark called Designit. http://www.designit.dk

  31. try http://www.rickmather.com
    Flash site thou the news section is based on a blog

  32. Definitely this one, which is my friend’s blog: http://fivecat.wordpress.com/ He also writes http://markrlepage.wordpress.com/

  33. hi! I stumbled across this one > http://jajaarchitects.blogspot.com/
    is there any specific reason why you are interested in architecture-firms blogs?

  34. We have one at HOK, but it’s not a part of our site. It’s separate.

    http://www.hoklife.com

  35. mammoth (m.ammoth.us/). I’m not sure of their status as a firm, per se (they go by ‘cartel’), but they enter design competitions.

  36. we started blogging on http://www.theapt.com/ 5 years ago as a way to share information intra-office. it has blown up a bit since.

  37. softlabnyc.com news section

  38. Good question. Here is a very professional blog from the architecture firm WATG. http://www.watg.com/index.cfm?view=blog This blog has a public interoffice vibe. Like an extension of transparency to their firm. I think this is a very good example. Click on the architecture category (or any other category you’re interested in) to kick off the “fluff”! The blog seems heavy with information, that doesn’t seem relevant to understanding the firm. (Of course it is relevant, but when you first meet the blog their is a strong desire to find what really interests you.) It seems to be a very good model for firms to develop (to build image and interoffice discussion.) I’d like to know what the employees think.

  39. morphopedia, sort of

  40. Michelle Kauffman, of course. She is the queen of architecture social media, she has everything on her website; videos, tweets, blog, you name it. http://www.mkd-arc.com/

  41. http://www.maurerunited.com/blog/

    really good site and blog with interesting projects

  42. Blogs in Hebrew relevant?
    We started ours only recently, and are still “learning the ropes” of keeping a blog.
    Will be interested to read the reason for your question and any insights you find.

  43. http://www.kaplusa.com/blog/

  44. I like Super Colossal as well:
    http://supercolossal.ch/

  45. CODA Studio based in Fremantle, Western Australia:
    http://coda-studio.com

  46. We follow a eclectic architecture blog that seems to capture the latest happenings in design and culture. It has a nice breadth of information and a great “voice.”

    http://www.brennanarch.blogspot.com

    The blog is linked to, but not fully integrated with, their website.

  47. Also, the 100K house blog is terrific.

    http://www.100Khouse.com

    It provides a very thorough look at the real-time building of passive housing, and other juicy info. They are way out in front on the passive haus.

  48. Sure do!
    http://brennanarch.blogspot.com/
    they just recently got nominated for a Mobbie Award! (the Baltimore Sun Blog Awards in Sept).

  65. Marcenaria Barauna
    http://www.barauna.com.br/blog

    Marcenaria Barauna came into being as an extension of the practice of the Brasil Arquitetura Studio. In 1986, after some years of practicing architectural design, summoned up the energy to set off a new adventure, meeting a demand that pulsated in us for some time: manufacture our furniture designs.

  66. Maybe you should be looking for Architecture Bloggers that also get hired to work on Architecture from time-to-time.
