Facebook for Architects: Exploring Architizer.com

Architects connecting with architects.  
Architects connecting with developers.  
Architects connecting with the world.
All of the above - and more - is happening right now on one of the most popular social sites for the architecture and design industry:  Architizer.com.

Whether you're an architect yourself, or just someone thinking about hiring one, you've probably already heard of this growing social media sensation.  

Architizer.com has been loosely defined by The New York Times as "a hybrid of Facebook, Flickr, and LinkedIn for architects."  The site features a myriad of eye-catching photos, architect bios, news and information on past, recent and current projects.  What's more, Architizer has been single-handedly responsible for transforming the way architects communicate with each other - and with the public - since 2009. 

Like most other social media sites, Architizer is completely free to use and offers a variety of user-friendly functionalities.  Each project has its own dedicated page, which means project collaborators can list the details of their involvement, allowing the user to receive a comprehensive summary of a particular design. 

Alternatively, when the "Products" tab in the main menu is selected, users are directed to a microsite filled with building product brands that they can explore. Although this area of the site is currently in Beta testing mode, architectural product manufacturers are still able to list their profile on the "Products" page by emailing Architizer directly.

From colorful images of "you have to see it to believe it" designs, to more vital posts such as architect and collaborator contact info, Architizer.com has it all.

In our opinion, Architizer.com is one of the best, one-stop-sources for all things building and design.
