Overview Edit

Structurae was founded in 1998 by Nicolas Janberg, who had studied civil engineering at Princeton University.[4] In March 2012, Structurae was acquired by Ernst & Sohn [de], a subsidiary of John Wiley & Sons, Inc.,[5] with Janberg joining the company as Structurae's editor-in-chief.[6] At that time, the web site received more than one million pageviews per month, and was available in English, French and German.[4] In 2015, Janberg bought the site back to operate it as a freelancer again.[6][7]
