ArchDaily is the source of continuous information for a growing community of thousands of architects around the world, a community searching the latest architectural news: projects, events, competitions and more. ArchDaily was launched in April 2007 by David Assael and David Basulto, founders of Plataforma Arquitectura, currently the most visited architecture website in Spanish.
As Plataforma became an effective platform for architects around the world, both Davids decided to achieve the same in the English language. In 1 year, ArchDaily became the most read architecture website with 10 million visits per month.This community is constantly sharing their projects with the editorial team, and generate intense discussions in the comments, taking the architectural debate to a whole new level. This way, ArchDaily is done by architects, for architects and with the architects.
ArchDaily has taken the responsibility to potentiate young architects through the AD Futures section, curated by David Basulto, which features emerging practices that are about to make the jump. Previous features have included practices such as ICE (Hong Kong), Paisajes Emergentes (Colombia), JaJa (Norway), NRJA (Latvia), L.E.FT (USA) and more.
ArchDaily has also been conducting a series of interviews with over 30 practices, ranging from established practices (such as SOM, Natoma Arch, Yazdani Studio, OMA, REX) to young emergent architects (Work AC, Tatiana Bilbao, Cameron Sinclair, Johnston&MarkLee). This interview has a set of standard questions focusing on architecture and how they run their practices. As the questions are the same for everyone, you can compare the different answers and get a global idea on how the profession is developed from different approaches.
