Seven years ago today ArchDaily was launched, carrying on its shoulders a big responsibility: with 3 billion people expected to move into cities in the next four decades, we wanted to provide inspiration, knowledge and tools to the architects who design for them. Seven years later, and these lofty goals seem to have struck a chord worldwide, and we are now the world's most visited architecture website, reaching over 350,000 readers every day through our international website but also through four local versions: Plataforma Arquitectura, ArchDaily Brasil, ArchDaily México, and ArchDaily Colombia, with more still to come.
To celebrate these seven years, we've whipped up a special version of our logo (see above), an infographic telling our story from those very early days, and a rundown of the most popular project from each of the last seven years.
And of course, we'd like to thank you, our readers, for your support and engagement over the years. From sharing our posts on social media to providing insightful thoughts in the comments section, you have helped to make ArchDaily everything it is today, and helped to bring our mission into focus. Our readers have meant everything to us for seven years, and we'd love to hear what ArchDaily means to its readers. Please let us know in the comments!
Have a very happy ArchDaily birthday!
The ArchDaily Team
