Happy new year! I hope you and your family have a wonderful break over the holidays.
I am excited to share what I have been up to ever since my last post in 2020 and a long break in 2021.
What is ARCHLOGBOOK 2.0?
ARCHLOGBOOK 2.0 represents a renewed vision and consolidation of my learnings and experiences as a young architectural designer.
Through this platform I want to be able to break down the barriers of knowledge and help you to succeed in your career and life.
ARCHLOGBOOK aims to bridge the gap between architectural education and practice, where young architectural graduates and designers like yourself can accelerate your career with increased clarity & confidence.
Here's a summary what you can expect from ARCHLOGBOOK this year and beyond:
The ARCHLOGBOOK website has a new look!
This new updated website continues to be the main hub for all of my content across the various platforms and resources. It is also now easier to navigate the website to find what you want.
You can expect me to continue posting long form content via blog posts and/or video content where I share technical and practice basics on this new website.
The website is now run under Webflow instead of Squarespace so you may see a more pleasant speedy experience.
As migration of the posts are still in progress, you may refer to the old website (archlogbook.squarespace.com) for posts that you do not see here.
Let me know what you think about the new site!
This channel has been online for a while now, especially during the MADCon phase where I got myself on camera more often. Here you will find video content on my new podcast (yay!), workshops and more. You can also find my 4 part Parametric Design Video series there as well.
Podcast - ARCHLOGBOOK Chats
This podcast is one of the new projects that I have been working on for a couple of months.
ARCHLOGBOOK Chats is a brand new podcast where I, Gabriel Chek, sit down with architecture students, designers, practitioners and academics to discuss the various challenges, achievements and opportunities in the education and practice of Architecture.
You can expect the first season of 7 episodes to come weekly from 2 Jan 2022.
If you want to join me in a podcast episode, feel free to drop me an email and we'll follow up from there.
Some of you have requested for this - I have been working on a couple of ebooks to better consolidate the content I have shared on ARCHLOGBOOK.
These ebooks are a must-have for those starting out in the industry.
There will be 4 ebooks coming out, starting with the first book on Industry Basics.
Stay tuned for more news on the book launch.
For now, you can check out the legacy ARCHLOGBOOK Content Pack PDF, still available for download!
Instagram & Telegram
On Instagram and Telegram, you can expect content updates and interactive posts for discussions and bite-sized content.
If you are among the 500+ people who have subcribed to my email newsletter. I will like to apologise for the mess in newsletters. To be honest, I have always been struggled with newsletters, but I hope to be able to send a monthly or bi-monthly newsletter to keep you all updated. Subscribe to my mailing list at the bottom of this page.
Workshops & Livestreams
I will also be introducing workshops and livestreams to further connect with you. More details soon.
If you are looking to accelerate your self-awareness of what makes you great as an architecture designer, don't miss the Discovering Your Architectural Flavour workshop where I shared more about how we can identify our unique Architectural flavour based on personality, skill sets, learning style and passions.
Thank you for supporting ARCHLOGBOOK. Stay tuned for more updates!
