Welcome to 2020 – a new year with new resolutions and a fresh work perspective. To kick-off all things ‘new’, we’ve released our new look this month. Our design team have been hard at work to give your favourite architectural title an updated, crisp look. We’re incredibly pleased with the result, and we hope you are too!
As always, our pages are brimming with industry advice, inspiring case studies and the latest innovative products to hit the marketplace. In this month’s issue, we’ve explored one of Margot Krasojević’s latest conceptual designs, the piezoelectric pendulum bridge in Tianmen, China. Truly innovative, the suspension footbridge spans two mountains and its design simulates that of the surrounding snow-capped mountain landscape. Turn to page 14 to find out more about the project.
Elsewhere in this month’s issue, we cover two upcoming shows that are bound to inspire you for the new year’s projects. Firstly, the Surface Design Show opens its doors at the Business Design Centre in London’s Islington from 11 to 13th February. For all things surfacing, turn to page 38 to plan your itinerary. Meanwhile, across town in the city’s fashionable Spitalfields, ARCHITECT@WORK is set to inform with a series of talks and seminars as well as a host of immersive experiences. Turn to page 39 to find out more about this year’s show.
