The June 2016 issue of Azure features four stunning offices at the forefront of a new approach to working. Plus, our list of top 10 must-see summer events in New York, a bold Toronto office tower that rises above two historic warehouses, the latest in lighting, and more.

On newsstands now, our office issue highlights four spaces that are embracing the work-anywhere revolution: Montreal architecture firm La Shed turns a centuries-old general store into its own gleaming all-white think tank; in London, U.K., grocery chain Sainsbury’s creates a dynamic environment that encourages flexible activity-based working; Campari sets up shop in Toronto, with a pink-imbued headquarters; and in China, a digital communications company reconfigures an industrial park into a futuristic and immersive centre.

Visiting New York City this summer? We’ve put together a top 10 list of must-see events and attractions happening throughout the city, from quirky art installations to West 8’s transformation of Governors Island into a rambling public playground complete with four super-slides.

Also: Our favourite lamps seen at Frankfurt’s largest lighting expo, from decorative indoor pendants to slender outdoor light poles; in Toronto, local firm Sweeny&CO maintains the history and integrity of two centuries-old brick-and-beam factories by erecting a 11-storey tower above and around them; a vibrant culture-rich hotel in the heart of Mexico City; and innovative and super-durable textiles for facades and roofing.

The June 2016 issue is available in Canada, and hits U.S. newsstands on May 23. Get yours now: for single copies go to shop.azuremagazine.com; to subscribe, go to azuremagazine.com/getazure.
