World Design Guide launched
January 19, 2013 Leave a comment
Dezeen has developeda guide to all the architectural and design events in the world. The World Design Guide is still in it’s infancy and it will grow and develop more as time goes by, but the idea is a simple and fantastic one.
Quite simply, it’s a map of the world with markers on it, not too different from the markers on Google maps, these markers represent an event. But it doesn’t stop there, you can filter events by location (not just by zooming in) or date or even name. The events listed only currently cover 2013 but more will be added as time goes by.
Last September Dezeen published a map of events at the London Design Festival which was viewed by over 500,000 people in a week. It’s now the highest ranking map of the festival on Google. Earlier last year it also mapped all the architecture and design studios in the east London borough of Hackney as part of its Designed in Hackney project. This map has been viewed over 2.5 million times. Dezeen is now working on more map-based apps and tools that it hopes to launch in the coming months.
