… at least in the architecture world!
Yesterday, in observance of Valentine’s Day, LANDMARK WEST! put a special push behind the Love Your Landmark project on Twitter. Almost immediately, the lovin’ was a-flowin’! We tweeted our friends and colleagues here in New York, over in Chicago, out west in Los Angeles. They, in turn, shared the Love Your Landmark alert with their followers, and pretty quickly the responses started rollin’ in. With a little international flavor, below are the results of yesterday’s Love Your Landmark Twitter-a-thon!
Thank you (thank you!) to all the tweeters who played along! Extra-special thanks to the Chicago Architecture Foundation (@chiarchitecture)! Your excitement really inspired Chicagoans to think about the places they love in their city, as the Illinois-heavy submissions are evidence!
Don’t forget, the project goes on for the entire month of February. So print yourselves a sign, pick up a camera, and get out there to show the landmarks in your area how much they’re loved!
