So why retire the weekly doses? Well:
- Websites like ArchDaily cover projects at such a great (visual) depth and quantity to make this website superfluous, especially if I don't take the effort to write the commentary;
- Even though the website started as a way to write about the "ideas embedded in architectural works," over the years I have come to believe strongly that place and experience are so integral to architecture that writing about a building without visiting it is a disservice;
- The weekly schedule (posts typically went online on Mondays) conflicted with other deadlines, such that the weekly doses were becoming even more last-minute than usual;
- I already have a daily blog where I can (and do) post projects and book reviews, so why maintain more than one website? (Along those lines, anybody want to take over The Archi-Tourist? If so, just email me; it's yours for free.);
- I'd like to devote the time and effort in creating the weekly doses to other things, such as my work at World-Architects, teaching at NYIT, my writing at Houzz, the occasional architectural walking tours, and perhaps writing another book.
