The World-Architects platforms feature regularly updated news with weekly newsletters in English, German, Spanish, Italian, and Japanese. Our editors diligently and independently select content that is relevant, important, and of the highest quality—just for you. This curation makes the website a recognized source of information for high-quality contemporary architecture.

We take a broad view of architecture. But occasionally there are topics we want to highlight because they are of particular importance for architects and the culture of building. We give increased attention to these topics for several weeks at a time through the creation of a new free-to-use repository — We wish you enjoyable reading with our thematic weeks.

Light #1

Without light we cannot see. To perceive architecture, light is essential. From the thoughtful and harmonious interplay of light and space emerge fascinating worlds of experience where people can feel at ease, focused, or even excited. Yet the creative potential of light is not always understood or fully exploited. In cooperation with ERCO, we seek to shed a little more light into the darkness.


Handwerkskunst #2

Mit handwerklicher Präzision und Kunstfertigkeit, Traditionsbewusstsein und Kreativität zaubert de Sede Menschen ein Lächeln ins Gesicht: Seit 1962 verarbeitet die Schweizer Manufaktur sorgfältig ausgewählte Materialien zu feinen Sitzmöbeln mit raffinierten Funktionen. de Sede bewahrt auf sympathisch-anachronistisch Weise altehrwürdige Handwerkstechniken und setzt auf Dauerhaftigkeit statt trendiger Wegwerfware. Das macht die Möbel-Skulpturen aus Klingnau heute so zeitgemäss wie nie.
