ICON magazine issue #071
This month, we reveal the icon 20/20: 20 designers and 20 architects making the future and transforming the way we work. From recent graduates to a billionaire industrialist, including teachers, funders, researchers and aid workers, it’s an unmissable guide to the thinkers and actors you need to know about. And you’re on the list – yes, you.
But, in a packed May issue, that’s not all. We’ve got a four-way conversation between Bruce Mau, Marcel Wanders and Dunne & Raby about how the crisis makes change possible. There’s a look around Wang Shu’s extraordinary Ningbo Historic Museum, a dramatic mountain of smashed tiles and weathered brick. The design schools that are setting up franchises around the world come under the microscope, and we pore over North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il’s thoughts on architecture.
Plus, up front, we’ve got Álvaro Siza, Giulio Cappellini, Muzak and new work from Kazuyo Sejima, Yves Béhar and MVRDV. Review looks at the Le Corbusier retrospective at the Barbican, the first major study of the “design art” boom, Ray Johnson’s mail art and the strange beauty of film opening credits.
