About The Architect's Newspaper

The Architect’s Newspaper serves up news and inside reports to a niche community of architects, designers, engineers, landscape architects, lighting designers, interior designers, academics, developers, contractors, and other parties interested in the built urban environment. The Architect’s Newspaper delivers quality news and cultural reporting through print, web, newsletter, or Twitter—all the news you want, in all the ways you want to get it.

Readers tell us constantly that The Architect’s Newspaper is “essential,” “relevant,” “timely,” and “the only thing I read.” They want a source that understands their interests and practices—and gives them what they need to know in brief and with a point of view. No rah-rah. Just useful information and insightful, readable criticism. Diverse voices. Open dialogue.

Combining timeliness with authority, The Architect’s Newspaper is the most comprehensive source of information on the latest projects and commissions, unfolding politics and debate, and cultural developments related to architecture, with national coverage by way of nine national issues each year, in addition to three editions of our interior design–focused publication AN Interior.

Our news pages are rounded out by a mix of topical essays, opinionated columns, project analyses, firm profiles, interviews, new products, reviews of exhibitions and books, plus an updated calendar of important events and competitions. We also have a deeply in-the-know gossip column, a favorite with readers.

If you care about architecture and design, join our community and get in the know.

Who We Are

            • Diana Darling, Founder and Publisher

              Diana Darling is responsible for finance, sales, marketing, production, and the general media operations of all editions of the newspaper. In 2006 she organized and helped develop the New Practices round tables, lectures, competition, and exhibition with the AIA New York chapter. New Practices seeks to engage young architecture firms in a discussion of subjects like business development necessary to become a successful small practice. She helped formulate a competition that selected six firms to become examples of a successful practice in an exhibition at the Center for Architecture in New York City.

              Darling has over twenty years of graphic arts, print, and multi-title catalog and marketing, production, circulation, and distribution experience for companies such as Bloomingdales, The Limited, and Neiman Marcus. Before founding The Architect’s Newspaper, Darling established the European marketing office for the Gap, based in London. She was a member of the launch team for the Banana Republic catalog in 1999. She is currently a board member of Open House New York and CultureNOW.
