...for all of your support over our first 200 editions!
Today World Architecture News is celebrating a significant landmark in its life so far, having produced and delivered 200 News Review editions! Marking this exciting occasion we would like to take the opportunity to thank you for all of your support and contributions over our four year history.
In such a short period of time we have managed the enviable achievement of becoming the world's most popular architecture news provider with 135,000 subscribers in over 200 countries across the globe, and last year, were honoured with the title of Website of the Year 2008 at the International Building Press awards...none of which would have been possible without your help. From uploading projects or providing interviews and photography, to advertising on our site or uploading your CV, every act of participation is one that has made World Architecture News go round, so thank you!
Marking this milestone, Arup Chairman Philip Dilley said: "For the last four years World Architecture News has been a wonderful source of inspirational ideas. It’s coverage of the latest industry news, and projects is always insightful. My congratulations to the team on their 200th issue.”
WAN are particularly honoured to have received words of support from architecture great, Daniel Libeskind:
"I am not usually someone who feels comfortable with reading publications on-line. I guess it is a generational thing! But… I do have to say that WAN is the pre-eminent journal for all digital architectural publications and news/reviews. Not a day goes by that I do not read something about my colleagues and indeed, sometimes about myself, in your news reports. I want to congratulate whole-heartedly the WAN 200th issue of News Review and wish you thousands more!"
Cementing our appreciation we have decided to offer exclusive discounts on all of our key services for one day only. These offers will be available on Monday 20 July.
