The Rome-based architectural publisher Divisare.comclosed in December 2018. The full archive is offline. They left a short goodbye and “a strong need for alternative ways of communicating quality architecture on the web.”
It was among the best. Less commercial than ArchDaily. Restrained typography, high-res images, ad-free. A better experience for exploring work than the websites of most architects. It was native to the web. More than a blog. They tried new models for publishing. Small books under ten euros, deep image tagging, office profile pages.
Anyway, it’s on the Wayback Machine as a ruin and we’re searching for alternatives. We asked friends for suggestions. The list is short. Think of the architecture library from college—the web needs architecture publishers to do what the best did in print. That's clear with Divisare gone. Maybe we should do something about it.
Here’s the list. See below:
