The brilliant @moragmyerscough designed the cover of the 200th issue of ICON – our summer 2020 edition – which is available to read now for ~free~ on iconeye.com. It's a Cities special, taking readers to Jeddah, Bratislava, LA and London as we interrogate artistic freedom, ‘punk’ redevelopment, civil rights struggles and politicised sightlines. @sumitraup sits down with renowned Italian designer Patrizia Moroso (@morosofficial) and @debikaray meets Paola Sakr (@studiopaolasakr), the Beirut designer working artfully with unusual materials. Plus: the new wave of British Islamic architecture, Olson Kundig, Neri & Hu, James Barnor, Cristina Iglesias, Zaha Hadid Architects and much more #icon200

MoDusArchitects recently completed project - a new gateway to the small city of Bressanone, South Tyrol, in Italy - eschews the technical, functional design vocabulary typically offered up in the design of infrastructure. . Created as part of the Bressanone-Varna Ring Road, a series of connect, largely underground roads with the aim to reduce traffic volume, the mouth of this new tunnel is almost sculptural in form, thanks to its curvilinear design. . #architects #architecture #architect #architecturedesign #architectures #sculpture #sculptural #italian #italy #italygram #traffic #road #roads #infrastructure #build #city #tunnel #project #design #designer #concrete

Despite lockdown measures being enforced and extended across much of the world, there are still some unexpected delights: Jaimie Shorten won the competition to design this year’s Antepavilion in East London, which will take form of shark sculptures floating on pontoons in the Regent’s Canal. Fitted with audio equipment, the sharks will ‘read out’ lectures about architecture and planning.
