This edition of Section D, Monocle 24's weekly review of design, architecture and craft turns its editorial gaze back to their "own turf" to consider ways in which publications cover design and architecture, both in print and online. The episode asks whether "traditional magazines are as influential as they used to be," and whether or not "clicks and online-only articles can actually pay the bills?" In search of answers, Monocle's Henry-Rees Sheridan talks to ArchDaily's co-founder and Editor-in-Chief, David Basulto, along with European Editor-at-Large James Taylor-Foster, about the origins of the platform – and more.
You can hear the ArchDaily segment at around fifteen minutes into the show. This episode also features a discussion with editor and design consultant Katie Treggiden, along with art director and award-winning infographic designer Francesco Franchi.
[ArchDaily has] gone beyond simply replicating the content of a traditional print publication online and become an engine for debate, news, opinion and insight among professionals and aficionados alike.
