The Local Project

Aidan Anderson is the founder and editor-in-chief of The Local Project, an architecture publication known for celebrating extraordinary design to an inspired community.

In this episode, Aidan and Dave discussed:
  • How The Local Project has evolved from an Instagram page Aidan used to share his favourite architecture and interiors while working as a furniture maker, to a 46-person media company with a category-leading YouTube channel, website, magazine and book.
  • The importance of highlighting the humans behind architecture, ensuring the architect or homeowner is front-and-centre, and how this narrative-driven approach has been key to the success of their well-known project films.
  • Why Aidan believes architectural print is far from dead, and the thinking behind the launch of a magazine that has the qualities of a book, designed to be kept and displayed.
  • What’s next for The Local Project, and why Aidan is excited about the potential for new forms of educational content that teaches the public about the thinking behind great architecture.
