Established in 2019, ARCHUP emerged in response to the noticeable gap in quality Arabic architectural content. Today, we stand as the largest dual-language platform dedicated to the world of architecture. Our non-profit mission is rooted in disseminating architectural knowledge, fostering creativity, and promoting a rich architectural culture in both English and Arabic.

The answer is no; our name “ARCHUP” is a combination of two key words: “ARCH” and “UP.” “ARCH” refers to architecture and design, while “UP” signifies the fundamental concept of advancement and progress. Therefore, our name symbolizes our aspiration to elevate the field of architecture and enhance innovative design. It’s a name that can be easily understood in both Arabic and English, reflecting our vision to promote architectural culture and develop a thriving architectural community.

The Essence of Our Name The name “ARCHUP” is not just a label; it embodies a mission and a promise. “ARCH” is derived from ‘architecture’, and “UP” signifies elevation. Together, they represent our commitment to elevating the standards of architecture.

Our Visual Identity Our brand’s visual identity is inspired by architectural blueprints. When viewed as a whole, these blueprints resemble a spool, symbolizing the archival nature of our platform. This metaphorical representation is a nod to our dedication to archiving and showcasing architectural excellence.
