ALTERNATIVES IN PRINT: CLOG

As you can imagine, we’re all in favour of all things monothematic – and New York-based architecture publication Clog is a more than welcome addition to the club.

MAKE CITY

Whilst cycling in the city of Berlin, sometimes it is so shocking to observe how badly designed the city is.

Make City is a new festival on [...]

Read What You Want! A Reading Club… in the Ringbahn S41.

Read What You Want! is a hybrid between a book club and a reading club, that also focusses on the importance of space. The event is an experiment on how people inhabit spaces, both printed, as in the pages of a book, and physical, by our surroundings in the city. It is planned as an [...]

Architectural insanity from MVRDV, our cover stars of issue #18: the Rotterdam-based architecture firm recently completed their first building in their home town, a giant covered market hall with a variety of high-end food stalls and regional farmers, in the shape of two residential buildings leaning towards each other in a giant sweep and fusing [...]
