WebUrbanist has been covering urban architecture, art, design and built environments for over a decade, with over 100,000,000 readers since the site launched in 2007. Kurt Kohlstedt is the founder and executive editor of WebUrbanist — over the years, he has started other design-centric publications including Dornob, Gajitz and WebEcoist, but these days he spends most of his time working on 99% Invisible.


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 keeps the site up and running through good times and bad. Current authors include SA Rogers and Steve Levenstein, with occasional pieces by Kurt when he has time.


Over the years, WebUrbanist has been 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.
