ICON 202 - Winter 2020

Inside ICON 202: Winter 2020

In this issue – the first under a new editor – we take you from Lebanon to Brazil and from Australia to Hong Kong, exploring the most fascinating projects and people in the architecture and design worlds right now.

Rima Alsammarae reports on the architect-led grassroots initiatives hoping to inclusively rebuild Beirut after the August explosion. Amy Frearson explores the vital future of care home design in an ageing society. In a new major interview feature, Debika Ray speaks to Switzerland-based designer Ini Archibong, who is working on everything from mythology-inspired furniture to a pavilion celebrating the African diaspora.

Steven Holl discusses his new home for the arts in Houston, Dominic Lutyens looks back at the life and legacy of Terence Conran, and we meet two exciting, emerging design practices – Sibling in Australia and Studio Florian and Christine in Hong Kong.

There’s so much more – from the designers working with soil to uncover murky crises to Carlo Ratti’s plans to mix up Brasília. Plus: 3daysofdesign, LionHeart on ’emotional inhabitance’, Xaveer De Geyter Architects in Ghent, Margaret Calvert, Adjaye Associates and Liang-Jung Chen.
