25 Blogs on Architecture

I follow Architecture and Design with keen interest on the web, especially because many Dutchman have become known to stand out in the world of design and architecture.

With what I recently learned from using linkroll scripts from Deli.icio.us, I can easily reproduce a list I found via Archinet on Eikonographia of 25 “top” Blogs on architecture’.

Please note the reproduction below is in Alphabetical order, rather than on order of merit.

The list was compiled on the basis of Technorati’s incoming link ranking, the number of subscriptions via Bloglink and Google and Google images hits. As the writer comments: far from perfect, but at least a bit objective.

Anyway the Deli.icio.us ranking is again an other ranking than that of Eikonographia.


After publication of this post I Found out Eikonographia, is written by Michiel van Raaij, a Dutchman writing his thesis at our foremost Architecture University, TU Delft in Delft.

The one room cube: Hotel Everland


Hotel Everland is a hotel with only one room. It includes a bathroom deluxe, a king-size bed and a lounge. It is created by the Swiss artists Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann The L and The B of “L/B”.

It was first developed for the Swiss national exhibition Expo.02 and was located on the lake of Yverdon. Afterwards the mobile pavilion was brought to Burgdorf and placed on the factory roof at L/B’s studio.

From June 2006 until August 2007 the cube is placed on the roof of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Leipzig, Germany. During the opening times of the museum, visitors can take a peek at the Hotel. After closing hours it’s reserved to the happy ones that have booked the room for a night.

In September 2007 Hotel Everland moves on to Paris where it will be installed on the roof of Palais de Tokyo. It will also be exhibited for one year and run as a hotel, but this time with a view on the Eiffel Tower.
