Why architects don't blog

  • Comment
People complain about the blogosphere as a zone of pain, unpleasantness, solipsism, solitary revenge and audiences of five.

The nice thing about the world of architectural blogs is that, despite the occasional bitterness of tone, it is none of these things. Of course you get the odd rant against starchitects and the pernicious coteries of Clerkenwell and Camden Town, but you can hear that any afternoon across the coffee tables upstairs at Portland Place. Of course the architectural blogosphere is more global than that, But there aren't all that many blogs out there, possibly because a blog needs a cause behind it plus a fairly single-minded and obsessive-compulsive proprietor. Architects are more likely to be working late in the office or power-floating their concrete kitchen worktops than running a blog. And so there are not as many as you might have thought.
