The Innovators Issue: Junya Ishigama's genre-busting architecture, Sidewalk Labs and the future of the city, and more!

Out Now: The Trends Issue

From a softening of sharp edges to breakthroughs in material limitations, 2019 is shaping up to be an exciting year for design. A universal move away from unsustainable plastics means manipulating familiar elements and taking them in previously unexplored directions: wood will be twisted, folded and stretched to new limits, metal mesh moves from stiff and structured to tensile and textile-like, colour explorations are animating spaces like never before and both buildings and furniture will be pumped up in volume and shaped along curvaceous and organic lines.

On a grander scale, the merging of built forms with natural elements has moved from novel to normal. Landscape architect Tim Waterman weighs in on how several major projects are setting a new standard for architects and landscape architect alike – and how these ambitious examples go beyond ecological benefits.

Plus: Sid Lee Architecture’s crowning achievement atop a landmark Montreal hotel, maverick Dutch designer Bertjan Pot‘s purposeful pursuit of imperfection, a deconstructed hotel in Uruguay and the potential of 3D printed inflatables.
