Troika's experiments with light offer intriguing narratives on everything from truth in digital photography to the British weather. This month, the London-based trio will design a project room for Biennale Interieur (20-28 October) that imagines the future of living spaces.
Issue 113 of Icon is devoted to “Space”. In our exploration of the Second Space Age we visit Spaceport America, and we report on designs of experimental spacesuits for Mars. We also meet the artist Tom Sachs who carries out simulated DIY “missions” to the Moon and Mars.
Frieze Masters, launching this year at Regent's Park, London is a new international art fair that presents a contemporary perspective on historical art. The first 50 Icon readers to purchase tickets will receive a 25% discount.
This month sees major design festivals in Istanbul, Beijing and Belgium; New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art examines faked photography before Photoshop; Frieze Art Fair comes to Regent's Park; the Vitra Design Museum opens a show on Pop Art Design and Toronto's Design Exchange surveys the vertical urban factory.
World Architecture Day is just around the corner on 1 October, featuring a huge range of talks and discussions between leading industry figures, all taking place at Cannon Place, London. Here, we speak to the event's programme director Michael Hammond about what we can expect from its inaugural year. Readers of Icon can get 2 for 1 tickets.
