Submit Your Work
MARCH PUBLICATION DEADLINE JANUARY 15th, 2017; 11:59 PM EST
Hello, we understand this might be a lot to read, but please do read carefully before you consider sending us your work. There are many different ways to submit your work, so read which option might be the best for you!
Since our start, we have been receiving many project submissions. Such as master theses, course assignments and personal work. We urge you to not stop doing so. It is awesome to see everyone's projects around the whole world and this page, to be a place where we can share all our knowledge and techniques. We are constantly looking for the best projects that we can feature on our platform.
Interesting projects that go past "architecture" and start looking at societal links, environmental, and other types of topics that relate to new innovative techniques in Architecture. We get around 10+ student/firm submissions daily.
We usually pick the projects depending on important ideas: overall visual beauty/representation of the project, how concise and strong is the idea you are proposing and finally, how complete the project is. We are looking for full presentations, anything ranging from process models and drawings, to final boards with plans, sections, diagrams, renderings and model pictures.
There are many different ways to submit your project. Check them out below.
1. Instagram Tag: By tagging our username on your pictures on Instagram or using the hashtag #thearchiologist
Pros: 1. Easy method (no need to send us the picture through email/web) 2. Same project can appear more than once 3. Can tag more than 1+ pictures and all are considered 4. Student can be featured in different weeks, not just one
Cons: 1. Small feature on web and printed publication 2. Sometimes, if not specified, student name/university/nor project description will be made public. (We gather information from the post, if info is not stated, we will leave it blank)
2. Whole Project Submissions: Email
Unlike Instagram Tags, Whole Project Submissions are more worthy of recognition. In project submissions, we gather all information student has sent us: name, university, project description, jpeg images, etc... And we showcase it on our website and on a whole page in a printed publication.
Pros: 1. Can send us many files, not just a single picture 2. Send us more information about yourself and the project 3. More recognition and more space in the printed publication 4. Email submissions are sometimes easier depending on how tech-prepared you are with Internet related uploads 5. More time to send, you can take however long on an email and even save it for later. Online submissions must be made in the moment 6. Instagram web feature (1-2 images from your project will be posted on Instagram)
Cons: 1. More time to open gmail and send the files
How to send through email? Send us an email to the email-adress firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
1. State Your Name (Yes, sometimes people forget) 2. Information about yourself (we also want to know about you) --- Where you study/work at, where you are from, etc... 3. Name of your project 4. Statement/concept about your project 5. JPEG Images of your project (at least 6+) --- We are looking for full presentations: projects that are already completed and have a lot of information such as: diagrams, renderings, plans/sections, model pictures, etc... 6. Instagram username
