Icon 134: Venice Biennale
In this issue, in the spirit of the 2014 Venice Biennale's cabinet of curiosities approach, we have chosen to elaborate on the various themes and images that particularly fascinated us at this year's event: the cast of characters include a French enthusiast of ramps, an English aristocrat and corridor fetishist, a Japanese architectural detective, a Swiss flâneur and a rollerskating popstar.
Icon is one of the world’s leading architecture and design magazines. Every month we interview the most exciting architects and designers in the world, visit the best new buildings, analyse the most interesting new cultural movements and technologies, and review an eclectic range of exhibitions, books, products and films. Beautifully presented and accessible, rigorous and insightful, Icon shows you exactly what’s happening in architecture and design today, and what it means for the future.
