This month, as the centenary of the end of the Great War approaches, we’re in Canterbury, looking at an exhibition and installation of blown glass works by artists Baldwin & Guggisberg and running until Armistice Day, 11 November. Veronica Simpson takes the exhibition as a time to reflect on the possibilities of the role of art in sacred and ancient settings being revisited.
Not to miss this month is Rio Kobayashi’s If Only. He imagines that if we could just view the world from a different perspective – perhaps our perspective on world events could shift too.
We also have an in-depth look at the bars and leisure design sector, in our special Focus section. We look in detail at a clutch of projects, with work ranging from practices including B3 Designers, Phoenix Wharf, Macaulay Sinclair, Snøhetta, Goddard Littlefair, Turnerbates and Squire & Partners.
Also this month, we sit down with 2017’s FX Outstanding Lifetime Contribution to Design award winner, Ken Shuttleworth to discuss his prolific career, fuelled by a love of drawing and a desire to create better cities.
Also this month, work from: FUTURE Designs, K&S Lighting, Hamson Barron Smith, De Matos Ryan, BDG architecture + design, Mark Pinney Architects, Luxxbox, Buzzispace, Zero, LightArt, Luceplan and so much more!
