As you are no doubt aware, in January this year I set up a league of architects on twitter, and when I started there were only a few dozen.
Thanks to the enthusiasm of so many people, architects and not, we have now found over 600 tweeting architects, students and practices in the league. You can visit the league by clicking the tab at the top of this site.
Why does this matter? Well,
- its a good reflection of the takeup of such tools by architects around the world.
- its an opportunity for architects to find each other and share advice and information, (and enjoy themselves).
- its an excellent resource to learn about what architects are like and what they think about things – why not ask an architect a question?
The concept of twitter leagues in construction has taken off. There is now a Facilities Management League run by Martin Brown, and an AEC Collaborators League run by Paul Wilkinson. I’ve also heard of plans to set up an MCIAT Architectural Technologists League.
If you have a league of construction experts, why not drop in a comment here?
