Media Partner: ArchNewsNow delivers the most comprehensive coverage of international news, projects, products, and events in the world of architecture and design.

The ArchNewsNow (ANN) newsletter, launched in February 2002, is delivered daily to subscribers – free of charge – via e-mail. It hyperlinks directly to the latest news and commentary gleaned from sources around the world.

Original ANN feature articles on the home page and archives offer the first look at international projects by established and up-and-coming architects and designers. In addition, an interesting mix of observations, opinions, and musings on a range of subjects written by industry leaders are presented as INSIGHT. The calendar includes conferences, competitions, and exhibitions of interest to A&D professionals, with links to the events’ websites.

A proprietary artificial intelligence-based search engine identifies key stories available from international news sources on the Web almost as quickly as the sources release them. ANN’s software development team is committed to keeping the Web site pages and the newsletter compact so the site will remain fast and the newsletter won’t clog up electronic mailboxes. The flashing, blinking, and buzzing that interfere with reading so many sites now will not be any part of ANN.

In its first year, ANN was named 2002 Best Site in Architecture by Crain’s Detroit Business, and has consistently made PLANetizen’s annual Top 50 website list.
