We’d like to take this moment, a month into Archello 3.0, to thank all of our subscribers for showing such enthusiasm towards our new features and for your valuable feedback.
We introduced three new features: Stream, Bookmark and Curated Collections. You can ‘follow’ your favourite architects to find them in your personal news feed ‘Stream’. You can archive projects and products you love with ‘Bookmark’ and we upped our editorial content, ‘Curated Collections’ shows a themed selection of projects by experts.
We kicked off our series of collections with renowned Dutch architects MVRDV who made a great selection on ‘Young Dutch Talent’ showing us what innovations are happening here in The Netherlands. Publishers A10 new European architecture gave an overview of ‘Visionary Lofts’, showing what interesting uses we can put that ‘above’ space to. Our most recent collection tapped into what’s going on around Mexico, titled “Los Mexicanos Arquitectos“, curated by FR-EE architects who support Mexican architects in their reactions to the change in economic climate – a response that pushes technology higher in the list of priorities of design ‘to enable us to engage on multiple levels in one space’.
It’s no surprise that architects Zaha Hadid and Foster and Partners came at the top of our most followed architects. Sun control specialists Hunter Douglas and acrylic stone experts HI-MACS topped our most followed companies this month. These architects and companies are creating a regular news feed of their projects and products for our visitors, who seem to be responding really positively to the new features. We’d like to encourage other companies and architects to present their work and extend their profile on Archello.
Bookmarking is gaining traction with our users. The very popular project Gangnam Style by MVRDV is the most bookmarked project so far.
The spread of architects and companies that are using Archello’s new features is really encouraging, so the team would like to thank you again for your support. We’re really excited about all the new possibilities that are opening up since our relaunch – it’s shaping up to be the open platform for design that we’re always striving towards.
