Over FORM's 15-year history, we've had the privelege and honor of speaking to some of the most compelling and accomplished architects and designers working. For this month's installment of our Wayback Wednesday series, which highlights some of our favorite articles from the last decade and a half, we're delighted to share an interview our publisher, Ann Gray, FAIA, conducted with Thom Mayne. As we pointed out in the original feeature, which appeared in our January/February 2011 issue, "Thom Mayne is producing work that is more relevant than ever." We're thrilled to be able to share what makes him tick.

This year marks FORM's 15th anniversary. To mark the occasion, we'll be sharing stories and videos from our archives that highlight our history and unqiue perspective on architecture and design. Today we're delighted to bring you an exclusive archival video interview between our publisher, Ann Gray, and Paul Matt, of Matt Construction.
A few weeks back, we introduced you to new work from Brooks Atwood, Assistant Professor of Industrial Design at NJIT and principal of POD Design. Besides focusing on product design, Atwood has collaborated on notable art installations and even has a design for a new prefab house on the boards. Today, as part of our on-going series of conversations with architects and designers on their inspiration, philosophies and favorites, we're talking to him. As you might suspect, his take on his profession is witty, thoughtful and occasionally irreverent—just like his body of work.
As part of our on-going series of conversations with architects about the state of the profession, their inspiration and other pressing questions, today we get the perspective of Matt Gagnon. A product of Cornell University, Gagnon worked for Frank Gehry and Gaetano Pesce before launching his own studio in 2002. Since then, he has taken on a variety of projects, with clients ranging from W Resorts to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
