As the design world prepares for one of the most anticipated events of the year, Designboom, Architonic, and ArchDaily which make up DAAily platforms have put together for the visitors of Milan Design Week 2022, a unique, storytelling-programmed space, designed by architects and designers for architects and designers.

The DAAily Bar at the 2022 Milan Design Week Brings the Biggest Names in Design, Art, and Architecture

Milan Design Week is back bigger and more ambitious than ever, and 2022 is a very special year. Designboom, Architonic, and ArchDaily which make up DAAily platforms have created for the visitors of Milan Design Week 2022, a unique, storytelling-programmed space - by architects and designers for architects and designers.

While each of our three online platforms continues as a leader in its particular field, addressing the needs of its specific community, we’re taking the opportunity to take to the stage together – and quite literally – at our special, can’t-miss Milan venue to the east of Brera. The Swiss Corner at Piazza Cavour / Via Palestro 2 will play host to the DAAily bar from 7 to 10 June, where a curated talk series hosted by our three Editors-inChief will seek to inspire and entertain, while our bar, lounge, and outdoor terrace deliver a healthy dose of conviviality and connection.

The ArchDaily 2022 Building of the Year Awards

It has been said that we are living through a trans-apocalyptic era. Not pre-or post-apocalyptic, but something in between: a series of interconnected crises that demand action, at a time when it’s too late to prevent the world from changing, but not late enough that all hope has been lost for a (changed, yet positive) world. Architecture is deeply involved in this process, as the transformation of the built environment and the construction industry are key to the way we live.

For ArchDaily, this means our mission rings truer than ever. After a record-breaking 2021, with over 22 million monthly visits across the ArchDaily network, we continue to ask ourselves and our readers: how can we continue to provide inspiration and tools to a new and evolving generation of architects, designers, and - increasingly - architecture enthusiasts, home-owners and anyone who is interested in how we live, where we live and how to move forward? One of the most important ways that we have of doing this is through the Building of the Year Awards.

ArchDaily exists thanks to our readers - you - and so it makes sense that you are also the ones that continue to pick the best of the year in architecture, this time for the 13th consecutive year of the Building of the Year Awards. It is your turn to recognize and reward the outstanding projects that are making a difference, as part of an unbiased, distributed network of jurors and peers that has elevated the most relevant projects over the past decade. Over the next two weeks, your collective intelligence will filter over 4,500 projects down to just 15 stand-outs for the best in each category on ArchDaily.

The 2022 Building of the Year Awards is brought to you thanks to Dornbracht, renowned for leading designs for architecture, which can be found internationally in bathrooms and kitchens.



ArchDaily New Brand Image

When we started ArchDaily 14 years ago, we wanted to represent it through the archetypal image of a building, in an isometric view, blue color. After a quick sketch, we had the first version of our logo, which iterated throughout the years, adapted to diverse applications from wooden trophies to stickers, becoming a staple brand among architects.

As we continue into a new era, that started in 2020 together with Architonic and that continues today with the announcement of our new group DAAily Platforms, we thought it was time for an upgrade and we started to explore what we want to represent as a symbol, connected with our mission and views about architecture.

Today we are happy to share with you the next step into the process that we started in 2020 as Architonic ArchDaily, welcoming Designboom to our group.

When we decided to join Architonic, we saw a big opportunity to combine our expertise on curating projects and products, enriching the quality of the content we deliver to millions of professionals and enthusiasts around the world, with one vision: to help everybody who is part of architecture to do a better job, having a positive impact in our environment.

As complementary platforms we look at this big challenge from each one's lenses: project inspiration, materials knowledge, product research and specification. 

The ArchDaily 2021 Building of the Year Awards

2020 was a challenging year for ArchDaily and for all of us. The changes and uncertainty that emerged around the globe allowed us to double down on our mission to provide information, knowledge, and tools to architects, leveling the access to architectural knowledge and working towards a more diverse, equitable profession. This includes the importance of building a community, for which the Building of the Year Awards has always been one of our flagship community-led initiatives.

This is why for the 12th consecutive year, we are tasking our readers with the responsibility of recognizing and rewarding the projects that are making an impact in architecture and in our built environment, with ArchDaily’s 2021 Building of the Year Awards. By voting, you are part of an unbiased, distributed network of jurors and peers that has elevated the most relevant projects over the past decade. Over the next two weeks, your collective intelligence will filter over 4,500 projects down to just 15 stand-outs for the best in each category on ArchDaily.

ArchDaily: Welcome 2021!

Dear community,

As we close this crazy 2020, we look back on what happened during the year, from the buildings that left an impact, to the fast changing trends in the profession and in our built environment.

But as we prepare for a challenging 2021 I want to share our reflections on these intense moments, which are not just a consequence of the pandemic, but also of the diverse and much needed social and cultural changes that have been unfolding during the last years. As a young and diverse Internet company, with a conscious and globally distributed team, we have been working during the last years to embrace change, as we think it is one of the attitudes that can prepare us for a world that is changing fast, on the intersection of two of the industries that are shaping society today: Internet and the built environment. To be ready for change is not easy, as we need to constantly challenge ourselves and our egos, and do things in new ways, in new contexts. But as 2020 demanded, we were ready.

We're Looking for ArchDaily's Next Managing Editor

We are hiring! ArchDaily's Content Team is constantly working for our readers from all over the world in a platform that operates in four languages —Spanish, English, Portuguese and Chinese Mandarin. Our main goal is to ensure that the most important discussions about architecture and the city reach the maximum possible global audience.

ArchDaily x LifeCycles: Stream the Panel Discussions

Our lives as architects and designers revolve around inventing new ways to change both the profession in which we practice, and the world for which we build. From the individual buildings, all the way to the urban planning strategies that we propose, the way that we consider a project's longevity and impact on the world play an immense part in how we think about design.

To further explore how we can design cities, environments, and buildings, we are excited to announce the lineup for ArchDaily x LifeCycles: The Future of our Cities; a three day (May 26-28) series of panel discussions featuring architects from around the world who will be sharing their ideas and experiences for how we can build a better future.

ArchDaily + Architonic: Welcome to a New Era

Dear architects,

When we started this project 15 years ago, we knew that the expansion of cities would become the biggest challenge for humanity, and that architects, with better access to knowledge, had the ability to radically improve the quality of life of billions of people. That is why we envisioned ArchDaily as a global source of inspiration, knowledge, and tools to help architects face this challenge. Our carefully curated, unbiased, categorized database of projects, materials and knowledge, paired with a stream of globally diverse content, now serves more than 650,000 people every day.

As our industry is on the verge of a rapid digital transformation, it is our responsibility to understand how technology will integrate inspiration, product sourcing, project delivery, construction and even the management of the life cycle of buildings, enabling architects to do more and better, in an efficient and sustainable way, to face the big challenges ahead. 

That is why we are happy to share the news that we are joining Architonic, the largest database of curated products, to expand both our value propositions for the architecture and interior design world.

ArchDaily, One of the 1,000 Most Visited Websites on the Internet

ArchDaily has become one of the 1,000 most visited websites on the Internet, according to the latest Alexa Internet ranking -- an Amazon-owned company that measures the popularity of all Internet sites.

More than 360,000 users visit our flagship English-speaking platform every day, which when combined with our network of Spanish, Portuguese, and Chinese sites, creates a daily global audience of 650,000 people: the most visited architecture network in the world. 

But why is this relevant? Why do these numbers matter?

When we started this project 15 years ago, we knew that the expansion of cities would become the biggest challenge for humanity, and that architects, with better access to knowledge, had the ability to radically improve the quality of life of billions of people. That is why we envisioned ArchDaily as a global source of inspiration, knowledge, and tools to help architects face this challenge. A carefully curated, objective, categorized database of projects and knowledge, paired with a stream of globally diverse content.

But architecture is bigger than architects, and it has become - to our joy - a transversal subject. We have all, as a society, understood the importance of our built environment, how it can shape our mindset, improve our well being, form our education, and drive opportunities and set the grounds for a more egalitarian society. Moreover, a bounty of changes in urban and economic dynamics is also molding architecture into something more relevant, more recognizable, and more democratic. That is why our profession and craft are permeating into Netflix and Apple TV shows, becoming an object of admiration on Instagram, and representing something that you can dream of, aspire to, and work towards catalogues such as Pinterest.

BIM Webinar | Revit Masterclass

Brief
In this course, we will walk you through the parametric modeling features that Revit Architecture has to offer. Revit Architecture by Autodesk is one of the leading applications in the industry for Building Information Modelling and is reshaping the way we design and build. The ability to create smart 3d models, where each object has attributes that collectively create a robust database for coordinating and extracting information, is one of the most relevant skills any designer should learn today. After this course, you will know the basics of Revit Architecture, and you will feel confident to start creating your BIM
