In a continued effort to deliver tools, inspiration, and knowledge for readers, 2019 saw ArchDaily editors and contributors engage in a wealth of conversations with distinguished individuals from all corners of the design world. Whether this be a discussion with Carlo Ratti and Winy Maas on artificial intelligence or a conversation with Mario Botta on Modernism, these interviews convey the remarkable variety of talent, ideas, and paradigms through which one can engage with architecture and design.
To demonstrate this, and to reflect on how much both we and our readers have learned in 2019, we have celebrated by curating the top 25 interviews published on ArchDaily throughout the year. As an indication of the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of design, the interviews listed below contain not just architects, but those who have intersected with the architecture world through innovative products such as VELUX, world-changing ideas such as TED, and companies reshaping how we live, such as Airbnb.
