Icon 200 - The Cities special
The 200th issue of Icon takes readers to Jeddah, Bratislava, LA and London as we interrogate artistic freedom, ‘punk’ redevelopment, civil rights struggles and politicised sightlines. Sumitra Upham sits down with renowned Italian designer Patrizia Moroso and Debika Ray meets Paola Sakr, the Beirut designer working with unusual and waste materials. Plus: the new wave of British Islamic architecture and much more.
The curation of Clerkenwell Design Week
Wednesday 26th August at 3pm
In the 4th and final part of the Cosentino summer design festival series, Cosentino discusses with CDW what it means to participate in Clerkenwell Design Week, how the festival is curated as well as its benefits to the design industry and why it continues to grow each year.
The Open City Podcast
The new Open City Podcast will explore London’s past, present and future – featuring perspectives and stories about the city, and grappling with the challenges it faces after Covid-19 and beyond. It will create a cultural platform to discuss the most salient issues facing our city today and celebrate the people, companies, and stories behind London’s built environment.
8 back garden offices
These bespoke outdoor buildings have been designed with working from home in mind, elevating the concept of the garden office to new design heights. With a shifting attitude to home-working still playing out in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the workforce at large is beginning to examine how their home spaces operate as a part- or full-time office.
We strive to bring creatives and the design community together with the #DesignTogether. Please share your stories with us across social media for a chance to be featured.
