by Diana Budds All right, we've all heard of "The Social Network" by now, but have you heard of Architizer, the social network for architects and designers? It's a site that's (thankfully) not populated by sun-starved Harvard programmers with grudges or pictures from hazy vacations to Cabo, but, rather, profiles and projects from design professionals and firms from all around the globe. More than just networking, Architizer provides a handy platform to help architects present their projects to clients, critics, journalists and, essentially, anyone who's interested design. Since its 2009 launch, the site has attracted over 20,000 projects from the cadre of designers using the site. One of the four founders of Architizer, Marc Kushner (who we profiled in our December/January 2011 Young Guns article), will be presenting at Dwell on Design this year. He'll chat about what constitutes a successful web presence for architects and will be on hand to field questions from the audience. We sent a few pre-panel questions to Kushner about his background, the kindest compliment he's received, and a certain flop that riffed on the Garbage Pail Kids. Read on for the Q&A and join us on Friday, June 24th, at 3:30pm on the Design Innovation Stage for the panel.
