For 35 years now, Azure has been a champion of both the very best in the world of design and the people who create it. What better way to celebrate this milestone than with a special all-interview edition featuring conversations with the best and brightest in architecture and design.
From legendary architect Renzo Piano to such multi-hyphenate luminaries as Neri&Hu, Daan Roosegaarde and Paola Antonelli, our assembled subjects have reached the global apex of their respective disciplines. Individually, they are also leading exemplars of designers making a difference. Take Diébédo Francis Kéré, who has almost single-handedly revived the architectural vernacular of his native Burkina Faso, creating vital infrastructure in the process. Or Mexican architect Frida Escobedo, whose work is centred on inclusion in all kinds of ways. They’re just two of the fascinating subjects in our lineup of interviewees.
Our special May issue also includes the latest installation of our ever-expanding compendium charting design’s evolution since our founding. It’s an illuminating look at how the turmoil of the last five years has influenced design.
