Slogan "architectural conjectures, urban speculation, landscape futures"[1]
Created by Geoff Manaugh

BLDGBLOG is an architecture blog authored by futurist Geoff Manaugh, former editor at Dwell magazine,[2] former Editor-in-Chief at Gizmodo,[3][4] and a contributing editor at Wired UK.[5] It is acclaimed by The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic and The Architectural Review.[6]


The BLDGBLOG Book was published by Chronicle Books in April 2009. The book includes numerous essays and images from the website, but Manaugh's favored themes are heavily expanded in the body text of the book, which was written specifically for the publication.
