Archisoup is an online learning resource and platform for architecture students, young architects, and enthusiasts. We provide the next generation of architects with opportunities to learn and evolve through shared expert knowledge, tutorials, guides, and studio resources. By bridging the gap between architecture school and the licensed profession, we aim to help students understand, and define their own paths in architecture, starting from high school to professional work. Having been through and completed what can be a very lengthy, and often overwhelming learning process ourselves, we are able to provide aspiring architects with the opportunity to learn and evolve, through our own past and current knowledge and experiences.
We provide support to prospective undergraduates, current students, postgraduates and licensed architects, helping them to navigate and develop their unique skill sets and career paths.

Alongside this, we offer shorter studio resources such as understanding architectural scales, brick dimensions, and bonds.
The architect’s toolbox must include both physical and mental elements, and be in constant update whether it is through technological or informational resources.

In constant update and review, we feature equipment lists such as 31 Essential Tools for Architecture Students and The Best Books on Architectural Design & Concepts through to detailed guides on how to choose the best computer.
Architecture is the very fabric that clads our society; however the men and women behind many of these creations often go unknown, and only once in a while will one of these creators stand out as a true master of their craft.
In this section, we have created an ever-growing architectural database of famous and inspiring architects, and through the documentation of their lives and careers, we invite you to learn from the world’s best designers.
In continual development and growth, our shop provides bespoke informational products and resources for general architectural use. Our aim is to cover each part of the creative process from a project’s inception through to its completion.
You can find us on all the main social media platforms, however as architects we are visual people and so we tend to focus our efforts on Instagram and Pinterest, where you’ll find daily updates and architectural inspiration.
