Archtoolbox is all about creating a simple online reference for architects to use in their daily tasks.  Our blog isn't your average "interesting project" blog.  We link to articles about the profession and the issues we face today - more from the practice side than the design side.

Gold iPhones are rumored to be coming soon.  Brass is making a comeback in the architecture world.  Not sure I like the way this is going.
Move over silver -- brass is back. The gold metal is making a major resurgence, especially in interior design. YNN’s Amy Hadley has more on today’s “House Proud.”
