Crowdsourced Architecture Guides

The Architectour Books Curate the Best Urban Architecture

— May 11, 2017 — World
Seeing the architecture is one of the most satisfying aspects of traveling to new cities, and the Architectour Guide tour books help people to get the most of the urban landscape during their travels. The hardcover books, currently being funded on Kickstarter, crowdsource local knowledge of cities to offer up the most authentic (and least consumeristic) tour experience possible.

Anyone with a fair bit of traveling under their belt will know the experience of purchasing a map or guidebook or going on a paid tour only to get a sadly surface-level look at a city. The Architectour Guide is designed to eliminate that. Each city book contains over 300 spots to visit, specific instructions on how to visit "not so accessible places," pro tips on how to pay less, and hundreds of spots for sketching or taking photographs.
Trend Themes
1. Crowdsourced Travel Guides - The trend for crowdsourcing information is disrupting the traditional travel guide industry and creating new opportunities for locally-curated travel experiences.
2. Authentic Tourism Experiences - There is a growing trend towards seeking out authentic, non-commercial tourism experiences, which is creating opportunities for innovative niche tourism offerings.
3. Sharing Economy Travel - As more travelers seek unique and personalized experiences, the sharing economy is increasingly being used to offer authentic, insider tours and activities.
Industry Implications
1. Travel and Tourism - The travel and tourism industry can benefit from incorporating crowdsourcing and local expertise to create more authentic, personalized tours and experiences.
2. Technology - The use of technology to connect travelers with locals and to streamlining the process of booking alternative tours and activities can revolutionize the tourism industry.
3. Publishing - The traditional publishing industry may need to adapt and incorporate new, innovative digital models to keep up with the rise of new, niche travel guide publishers.
