Architecture, a life in links

It felt like time to do a bit of spring cleaning and sort out the many, many links in our sidebar, some of which are dead and many others dormant. What follows is a fairly epic post and pruning exercise, starting with the architecture links: 0111 still has its Architecture Gallery but the other links are dead / A Vivre is now private / a10 magazine is still with us, happily / this is a456 hasn’t been updated for six months or so but there is also a a456 tumblr / Adam Marcus is an architect and educator and hasn’t updated his blog in a while / the AN Blog no longer exists by ArchPaper is still there / anArchitecture has not been updated in a while / ArchDaily is now the ‘world’s most visited architecture site’ / Archi/Maps is still great / Archiclog stopped publishing a few years ago / Archidose is now better known as A Daily Dose of Architecture and is still recommended, as is the great Archimodels tumblr / some other venerable survivors and industry essentials: Archinect; Architect Magazine; Architects’ Journal; Architectural Association; Architectural Design; Architectural Review (which keeps threatening to go entirely online).

Andrew Raimist’s Architectural Ruminations has been dark for a while now / Architectural Videos posts sporadically / Architecture Lab stays current but Architecture My Ninja Please ceased a while back / Architecture of Film is still around, as is, of course, Architizer / Jackie’s Architoys Blog was great but short-lived, ceasing in 2010 / Archizines remains a great resource, as does ArchNewsNow and Arcspace / Arkinet has vanished, while Arkitektur is no longer trading / the Arts and Architecture archive is still online, and the Arup Thoughts blog is still running / Atelier A+D seems less vital than it once did while autour de l’architecture last posted in 2012 / the Bartlett Year 1 Architecture blog is now private while Bing Bang Pouf called it a day in March 2014 / BLDG BLOG is still an online institution, spawning a great book, as did Cabin Porn / Butterpaper no longer posts, nor does City Breaths but City Comforts has only been quiet a few months.
