WebUrbanist is now a passive archive and not an active publication, though its creators and contributors encourage you to delve into its archive of over 5,000 articles. Between 2007 and 2020, the site covered urban architecture, art, design and built environments, reaching an audience of over 100,000,000 visitors.

Creators and Contributors:

Kurt Kohlstedt founded WebUrbanist before launching a series of other design-centric publications including Dornob, Gajitz and WebEcoist — these days, he is focused on his work at 99% Invisible, a popular podcast and website about design.

Contributing authors included SA Rogers, Steve Levenstein and various others over the years. The gifted designer/developer duo of Duck Brigade crafted the current version of this website as well as the snazzy logo while Mike Waggoner tenaciously kept the site up and running through good times and bad.

Press and Publicity:

Over the years, WebUrbanist was covered by a number of other media outlets and popular blogs including The Guardian, The BBCCNN, NPR, TIME, ArchDaily, Architizer, Citylab, Curbed, Atlas Obscura, BoingBoing, Streetsblog, Gawker, Gizmodo, FOX, MSNBC, BuzzFeed, WebWare, Wired, Mental Floss and Neatorama.
