More information will follow by me and the team. For the time being here is our press release…
The new way to discover architecture and design
Archello 3.0 introduces a personal curated stream of projects and products from the world’s architects and designers.
Amsterdam, Netherlands – July 2, 2013 - Archello (www.archello.com), the platform for architecture and design, has introduced a number of new features to the site. Users can now curate their own stream of projects and products from their favourite companies in the industry. Bookmarking their favourite content is now possible, so that users can refer back to it for inspiration or use in their own projects. Each week a collection based on a current theme in the industry will be presented on the site and curated by a distinguished person or practice.
The Stream - More than 27,500 companies use Archello to present their work – from world renowned architects such as Zaha Hadid, MVRDV and SOM to building manufacturers such as Interface, FLOS and MOSA. Users can ‘follow’ them and receive their latest updates in their personal ‘stream’ which performs like a newsfeed.
“The Stream allows users to take the best bits from Archello’s global platform and put them on a personal and local level. For example, they can now follow companies in their country and get a stream of only regional projects and products.” - Martijn Postmus, CEO
Bookmarks – A new bookmarking functionality has been implemented. Whilst browsing the platform users can bookmark their favourite content for future reference. This can be used by creatives when looking for inspiration and solutions.
Curated Collections – Each week Archello’s editorial team will select a current theme in the industry and ask a curator from a distinguished firm or specialism to provide a selection of projects or products to present an informed outlook on that theme. A short editorial by the curator will compliment the collection. Example collections are: Ultra Minimal Japan, Interactive Lighting and Printed Façades. The first collection is curated by MVRDV, titled ‘Young Dutch Talent’. Link to first collection: http://www.archello.com/en/stories?tag=Young%20Dutch%20Talent
