John Hill is an architect, blogger, and author living in New York City. He is editor in chief of World-Architects eMagazine and a contributing writer at Houzz.
He received a Bachelor of Architecture in 1996 from Kansas State University, where he worked as an editor of Oz Journal. After working for DeStefano + Partners in Chicago for ten years, he moved east to attend the City College of New York, receiving a Master of Urban Planning in 2007. In between he started the web pages A Weekly Dose of Architecture, A Daily Dose of Architecture, and The Archi-Tourist, all of which he still maintains as outposts for writing about buildings and books.
