In this month’s FX:
We take a look at the almost magical attraction that water has had over the millennia and continues to have for us. Veronica Simpson takes a look at projects in the UK and abroad that gets humankind by, on, over or looking down on it - with a bit of a clue there that they include Marks Barfield's i360 attraction at Brighton.
Still on her travels, Veronica reports from St Helen's on one of at the success stories of the Art Council England's Creative People and Places programme - launched to take art out of the gallery, theatre or studio to interact directly with people - and at the work of Heart of Glass.
FX also goes to Dorset to see where Neal's Yard Remedies decamped to after expanding in the country, and examines the new landmark buildings created for the brand by Boon Brown Architects.
Elsewhere FX calls in to the new HQ offices created by Bennetts Associates for Saatchi and Saatchi, which loved the pub installed in its former home it had it brought to the new building! Which ties in nicely with this month's Focus feature on bars and leisure, with the latest news from the sector with interviews, case studies and trends in the high street.
