Icon 103 is out now. For our Annual Report, Iwan Baan, the most celebrated architectural photographer of his generation, has selected his 12 best images of the year. The globetrotting photographer travelled 190,000 air miles to take these pictures. We present them as a calendar for 2012, one photograph for every month. Also, it has now been a year since Icon’s redesign.
Icon 102 is out now and the theme of the new issue is “Fire”. We interview Peter Zumthor, who recently completed a memorial to 91 witches who were burned at the stake in the 17th century on the Arctic island of Vardø, Norway, in collaboration with Louise Bourgeois.
This month the Pavilion of Art and Design arrives in New York, the Canadian Centre for Architecture looks at the relationship between health and building design, World Architecture Festival gets underway in Barcelona and Museum Boijmans van Beuningen show alternative sustainable designs by Dunne & Raby, Joris Laarman and Philippe Rahm.
Icon is the media partner of the OMA/Progress exhibition currently showing at the Barbican, and we are releasing exclusive previews of the OMA in Conversation series. This is a unique chance to see individual OMA partners in conversation. The series begins with David Gianotten of OMA Asia and David Tseng talking about building in their part of the world.
This month a major retrospective of work by the Bouroullec brothers opens at the Centre Pompidou in Metz; the Los Angeles County Museum of Modern Art dedicates a show to mid-century Californian modernism; Belgium’s z33 explores the architecture of fear, and Frieze Art Fair returns to Regent’s Park.
We celebrate 100 issues of Icon with an exploding cake by Blanch & Shock and birthday cards from eight years of cover stars. Plus we go behind the scenes at OMA, who also designed our cover, explore the architecture of the London Olympics, pick the best of this year’s design graduates and interview legendary artist Christo.
