” A great architect is not made by way of a brain nearly so much as he is made by way of a cultivated, enriched heart.“- Frank Lloyd Wright
The goal of Architecture Lab is to make architecture more connected, and bring together architects/designers from around the world searching for the latest architectural news: projects, products, events, interviews and competitions among others.
Architecture Lab started back in 2008 with an aim of delivering information to architects around the world.
