Happy 10th Birthday Dezeen!
To us, there is a time before Dezeen and after Dezeen. This incredible endless online stream of the latest designs, the global reach, the fast pace, the raw comments. It was a revolution in architecture media that took place ten years ago.
In a changing media landscape, within a decade we moved from lengthy highly sophisticated architecture criticism by Herbert Muschamp to the dynamic newsfeed of Dezeen, commented on by the general public, less sophistication, more images, more democracy. Dezeen’s sunny side is the upbeat publication that sends our works to the furthest corners of the globe, its dark side, the anonymous comments but we became global and developed an elephant's skin.
Happy Birthday, keep up the good work!”
