Restless.arch is a phenomenon in the world of social media and architecture. It is a unique digital publication as well as one of the most followed architecture pages on Instagram. Christian Trampedach, the face behind this platform, has set out on a mission to find and showcase the most beautiful, advanced, and inspiring architectural designs around the world. This time, he came to Corwin.
Founded in 2016, Christian’s Restless.arch quickly began to inspire architecture interested minds and has since built an audience of more than 1.6 million followers. This journey began, when a young man from Denmark started creating 3D building models in architecture software. To get inspired, he browsed through architecture pictures on Instagram. He noticed that these pictures are lacking credits, so he wouldn’t be able to find the author or any further information. Christian therefore decided to start his own page, where he would collect these pictures and give the proper credit where it is due.

Make sure to check out @corwin.sk to learn more about their projects.
The name “Restless” comes from childhood experience – his teachers would always reprimand him for being a restless child. Instead of listening to his teachers, Christian channeled his natural curiosity and taste for adventure into creating a revolutionary publication.
What started as his own collection, soon gained momentum, as more and more creators found the page inspirational. The most important thing for Christian was always transparency – giving the proper shout out to the architects, photographers and creators – so that people know where their inspiration comes from. That is why he strictly refuses to do paid promotion or contract reviews. He wants to remain authentic, innovative and curious. The quality of the architecture is paramount. This uncompromising stance is the source of his popularity and his success.
We at Corwin have found this inspiring. Our projects have always focused on providing modern aesthetics and healthier living but we didn’t know how to translate this into a social media presence. We decided to invite Christian over to Bratislava to show him the city, our projects and talk about his work. Christian also offered to do a presentation for our team and show us the importance of social media in architecture.
Christian liked our green architecture and our way of integrating it into the urban landscape. In his presentation, Christian proved to us how important it is to be present on social media as a brand. To give our style a voice. Not only that, he also explained to us that in today’s digital world, any architect should consider using the power of Instagram to get their work out there and connect with the audience.
We would like to thank Christian for coming over and opening the horizons for all of us at Corwin. He showed us how we can visually communicate our own style of contemporary, sustainable living, relate to our customers and connect to all the other lovers of architecture around the world.
