After starting in Edinburgh in 2000 this online architecture resource is now one of the top globally in terms of traffic plus number of pages and images ranked.

e-architect is one of the world’s largest architecture websites with around 20,000 pages. e-architect is run by Adrian Welch and Isabelle Lomholt. Adrian and Isabelle both trained as architects but their strong interest in architecture led them to focus their energies on an online architectural resource rather than practicing.

The principal website is www.e-architect.co.uk but the first website was edinburgharchitecture.co.uk set up in 2000 followed by glasgowarchitecture.co.uk two years later, and e-architect in early 2006. The initial concept was to provide information on new buildings that would be helpful for not just local architects but a wide range of locals and tourists. Over time as connections were made this successful model was expanded and now includes all major cities in the world.

The principal difference between e-architect and other architecture sites is that we don’t just carry news: on e-architect buildings can be searched by country, city, type or by architect. For example you could find information on Wembley Stadium via England, London, Football Stadium or Foster + Partners pages.

e-architect.co.uk features building news, events, competitions, photos, jobs, awards and products. We feature a range of building types from houses to skyscrapers, plus major landscape and interior projects.

To give an idea of range we cover buildings from the USA to Papua New Guinea and from China to the Faroe Islands.

e-architect also has facebook, twitter, linkedin, youtube, instagram, tumblr and pinterest pages.

We also run architecture tours across the world, starting in 2000, now with 78 cities offered. Our clients are mostly architects offices on annual trips. Tours are tailor-made for groups, we don’t have daily walks or allow individuals to join tours.

Our policy is to focus on getting regular news about the most interesting buildings and on building up a useful, wide-ranging architectural resource. The news is updated daily 7 days a week. e-architect has around 1,800 pages on architects.


Of course we have strong views on architecture, but our policy is to focus on getting regular news about the most interesting buildings and on building up a useful, wide-ranging architectural resource.

We select projects that interest us. So we might cover an intriguing house design but not a major commercial development. We show buildings sometimes that are stimulating even though we may not like the project. We aren’t here to promote any specific style or approach to architecture, we show an eclectic range of work that read over time builds up a picture of current architectural status and direction.

We try and maximise the visual aspect of architecture. Architects tend to be highly visual people and we try and show many images for each project, it is not always possible to do this depending on our sources, but the intention is always there. We have a house style for image processing and for text presentation, but again we sometimes can’t access the raw materials to make this happen consistently.

But back to views and agenda. We both trained as architects in different universities and have views that sometimes differ. We express these through our weekly newsletter, but also over the last twelve years we have written numerous articles in other press, and online at e-architect. Some links below show a small selection of these.
