Dezeen to launch Face to Face, a series of podcasts featuring leading architects and designers

Next week sees the launch of Face to Face, a new podcast series from Dezeen featuring conversations with the biggest names in architecture and design including Es Devlin, Norman Foster and Thomas Heatherwick.

The first episode, featuring a conversation with artist and stage designer Es Devlin, will be available to download on Tuesday 10 March. Subscribe now on Spotify, Apple Podcasts or Google Podcasts to make sure you don't miss an episode.

In the meantime, listen to the trailer below for a preview of what's to come:


Hosted by Dezeen's founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs, each hour-long conversation will give intimate access to the biggest names in architecture and design, exploring who they are and how they got to where they are today.

"We report on the work of architects and designers every day, but we rarely get a chance to get close to the people behind the work," Fairs says in the trailer episode.

Tune in over the next eight weeks for hour-long interviews with leading figures in architecture and design.
