Want to see what we talk about at the RIBA and join in the discussion? Have a totally unscientific look using word clouds from Wordle, of this blog and the homepages of the RIBA and RIBA Journal websites.

About Wilson Yau
I work for the British Architectural Library at the RIBA as part of a team to share news, images and information online about the activities of the Library and the fascinating items we have in our architectural collections – it contains over four million items, so there's plenty to see! If you’re curious about what we do at the Library and with the collections, or want to discover the latest about our education programmes, public events and exhibitions at the RIBA, please visit www.architecture.com

    I love your word cloud examples. With “Tagxedo” you can also put your word cloud into a shape. Visually very effective!

      Thanks for the suggestion, I tried it out and it was nice to be able to rearrange all the words and RIBA into a heart shape!

    Surprised ‘Portland’ appears so many times! I love word clouds, I’ve recently put one on my blog

    Interesting that in all three clouds, the RIBA talks mainly about itself…

      True, the word RIBA is present a lot though it doesn’t always mean we are talking about ourselves – look again, we do like to talk about architecture, architects, buildings, sustainability, design and students too!
