Icon 128: Mexico
In our Mexico issue, we interview the architect Fernando Romero about working for Rem Koolhaas 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 we talk to Frida Escobedo, the young architect who’s mixing modernism with more ornamental traditions.
Upfront, there’s Caruso St John’s refurbishment of Tate Britain, the Tchoban Foundation in Berlin, Moscow Design Week, Mexican radios by Ariel Rojo, OMA’s De Rotterdam and Lina Bo Bardi’s Bowl Chair
This month’s design report brings you the latest German designs, and we talk to Mathias Hahn about his interest in both industry and craft.
And in Review, Patrick Keiller’s The View from the Train, Where you are – 16 musings on maps, Moshe Safdie’s flying start, the Kensington Dollshouse Festival, and the buildings of the labour movement.
