Abstract

This article focuses on how the new media of architecture corresponds to the architectural society in the 21st century and how the new media of architecture can have an instrumental power in creating a response/attitude to the period. Since the ArchDaily platform is the most prominent representation platform in the field of architecture, it was chosen as the object of the study. All publications of Archdaily in a specific time period have been examined in the titles; (i) the subject(s) (writers and readers, their interactions, and participations); and (ii) time (21. century architectural society). These studies were conducted with the Qualitative research software ATLAS.ti. The hypothesis of the research was founded on; Archdaily should be equipped with maximum sensitivity to respond quickly/instantly to the architectural culture in the 21st century. The research findings have determined that Archdaily has difficulty responding to the architectural society of the 21st century theoretically, and being 'instant' may lead to a loss of quality. Therefore, it is concluded that evaluating the new media of architecture is necessary/obligatory to establish more fluent and realistic new media-public-architectural society relations. In addition, the study proposed a new model to evaluate the new media of architecture.
