This month we talk to Fernando Romero, architect of the Soumaya Museum, about working for OMA and also for Carlos Slim, the richest man in the world – and Romero’s father-in-law. Edwin Heathcote visits David Chipperfield’s Jumex Museum in Mexico City, and Frida Escobedo, our cover star, explains how she’s mixing modernism with more ornamental traditions. Plus 24 pages of the latest German designs.
2014 begins with Barber Osgerby turning curator at the Design Museum and the Royal Academy putting on its biggest ever architecture exhibition. There's also Herbert Bayer's graphic art in Berlin, Moshe Safdie in Los Angeles, hysteria in film at the Freud museum, and a history of architecture in the Arabian peninsula.
This month we’re celebrating the second Icon Awards, our prize for the best international architecture, design, technology and culture of the past year. In this special issue we present interviews with each of the winners, and with Margaret Calvert, our Icon of the Year.
