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

Out Now: October Issue of Azure

Will genre-busting architect Junya Ishigami revolutionize his profession? Is Sidewalk Toronto a model for smart neighbourhoods everywhere? In its October issue, dedicated to Innovators and Innovation, Azure takes a deep and incisive look at today’s most forward-thinking problem solvers, civic projects and idea accelerators. 

Starting in the Greenpoint district of Brooklyn, New York, we take a tour of A/D/O by Mini’s in-house accelerator, Urban-X, which is investing in future cities one game-changing start-up at a time. In Canada, meanwhile, the design details for Sidewalk Toronto have been released: Four of our experts weigh in on the promise and potential pitfalls of the world’s most ambitious plan for a smart community. We also sit down for a one-on-one conversation with the architect behind this year’s Serpentine Pavilion: Tokyo-based Junya Ishigami, who is calling on his industry to reimagine architecture in a more holistic way
