109 | All the Stories Left to Tell

Amanda Baillieu founded Archiboo in 2014 as a new kind of architectural discussion space, building on the changing landscape of design media after the Great Recession.

109 | All the Stories Left to Tell

Amanda was interested in a new kind of dialogue about architecture that would explore the key drivers of a profession undergoing huge change. The Great Recession fueled many changes in how we practice architecture, and it follows that how we write and speak about architecture would change as well.

Archiboo has expanded to capture a variety of conversations about design and the social & economic frameworks that produce it. Archiboo produces the Architect Pitch, the Architect Web Awards and the Small Site conference and Independent Developer Masterclasses with Rare Space.

Before founding Archiboo, Baillieu was formerly the editor of UK architecture titles Building Design and RIBA Journal.

We were fortunate enough to have her on our podcast Social Design Insights, where Amanda spoke with us about all the ways in which design media is changing, and needs to change. Have a listen at the link above.
