Welcome to AR Folio: a new online community for architects around the world
This month we are delighted to launch a new website - AR Folio - which we hope you will get involved with. Indeed its success relies on you doing so.
For a long time we’ve had a strong suspicion that our readers produce some of the most interesting work going and have the best insights into architectural culture. With limited space in the magazine, and only so many people we can talk to each month, our dilemma has been how to make a platform for this so that we and other readers can access it.
The solution we’ve come up with is AR Folio. We’re inviting everybody to make posts either about their own work, or work they find interesting. We’d be delighted if your first impulse after finishing something you like - from a concept sketch to a completed building - would be to send it to Folio.
We’re relying on both your generosity and self-interest: the enjoyment of sharing your output with the profession (as a reciprocal exchange with others who do so) alongside driving traffic to your own website.
In order to aggregate as much diverse content as possible we want to foster a large, international architectural community, so we’ve made Folio free. The site is now live and AR greatly looks forward to seeing what you’re all up to.
