Since I have been on tumblr the blogs included in the Architecture Spotlight have not been updated or changed (3 years guys!). Below, find my favorite architecture tumblrs, in no particular order. I have only included curators (not photographers or architecture magazines with a tumblr). Check out these tumblrs!

I apologize if I forgot anyone!
"The hunting lodge is beautifully situated, alone beside a lake in the untouched mountain areas close to Åkrafjorden in the western part of Norway. It is accessible only by foot or horseback. The integration of the hut into the landscape has been an important part of the concept. The terrain is characteristic with grass, heather and rocks, and the hut’s shape, orientation, and materials are dictated by this. “

Muta-Morfoz / Muta-Morphosis Murat Germen
"Muta-morphosis series fits contents of multiple glances into one. These photographs are of documentary kind, there is no conscious insertion or removal of any details during post-production; mere components that disappear are the ones that get lost in horizontal compression. The photographical expression in the series is actually a synopsis of piecemeal words that remain in my mind during the visits to various cities. In other words, it is like a video footage that includes jerky movements of a typical stop-motion study that has dropped frames and no smooth continuity. The lack of a single perspectival structure due to multiplicity of perspectives after panoramic imaging, can be linked to Ottoman miniatures, which in turn, connects the global contemporary representation to its local traditional counterpart."

La Factory - Offices in Boulogne Mateo Arquitectura
“When addressing this project for an office building, we started off by thinking about the entire city block as a series of buildings with spaces between them to introduce light and air into the empty space. In this way we began to see the building as a mass that formed Rue Emile Zola, like a complex volume. We had some prior experience with this type of building in terms of dimensions, depth, and so on, that went almost automatically into the drawings and models. I always start this way, with a very abstract volume as a base.”
Pavement Loop Alex Varanese
“Paved surfaces form the arteries of the modern world, tempering our casual sense of day-to-day freedom with a kind of linear determinism that gently surrounds our innate proclivity for exploration with a fixed template of an explicitly geometric nature. But as is so often the case, the oppression of these constraints can force the emergence a new creative perspective for those willing to seek it out.”
