Before we move too far into the New Year, let’s take one more look back at 2019. Last month, <a href="https://www.archdaily.com/tag/adtopic-2019-year-review?ad_name=flyout&ad_medium=categories?utm_medium=email&utm_source=ArchDaily%20List&utm_campaign=monthly&utm_term=<ArchDaily published their “<a href="https://www.archdaily.com/tag/adtopic-2019-year-review?ad_name=flyout&ad_medium=categories?utm_medium=email&utm_source=ArchDaily%20List&utm_campaign=monthly&utm_term=<2019 in Review” article, which included 15 various “best of” comprehensive features. Everything from The Best Architecture Projects of 2019 According to Time Magazine, to What 2019 Meant for 3D Printing in Architecture, the Best Articles of 2019 to The Most Inspiring Architecture Photographs of 2019 (my personal favorite). Other notables included Best Houses of 2019, a compilation of the most visited residential projects published on their website, and 2019’s Biggest Developments in Landscape Architecture, which showcases how landscape architecture is shaping public life in the built environment. 

Worth taking a closer look at is the list of the Best Architectural Projects of 2019 — the 50 best architectural works published during 2019. Some standouts in the metal construction world might include the MÉCA Cultural Center by BIG Architects, Beijing Daxing International Airport by Zaha Hadid Architects, Opus by Zaha Hadid Architects, Exhibition Center of Shimao Shenzhen-Hong Kong International Center by SHUISHI, and the Adidas World of Sports Arena by Behnisch Architekten.
