Thursday Salute to Originals: Architexts

Are you in need of a break from model space in the land of AutoCAD? When we could use a short dose of humor, the website Architexts is always near the top of our favorites list. Styled in cartoon format, the short quips depict a familiar scene from an architectural office, usually playing out an insider’s take on day to day office operations that nearly any designer can relate to.

Take a look at some of our favorite Architexts:


Not only do the comics hit home, they usually spur interesting discussion in the comments section. The dichotomy between the architect and engineer is debated, the woes of redlining are expressed, and we watch junior designers scarf down a sandwich at their desk. We salute the creators of Architexts for their dead-on honest peeks into the strange culture of the architectural office!
