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

In Shenzhen, the Bao’an International Airport’s new Terminal 3 – designed by husband-wife team Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas – is capturing our imagination with its sinuous form. The 1.5-kilometre concourse is covered in a double skin, which writer Rodolphe el-Khoury characterizes as “a living epidermis, negotiating dynamic exchanges between both interior and exterior environments.”

Contributor Effie Bouras also takes us on a tour of projects around the world – including Rotterdam’s Floating Pavilion and New York’s Hunter’s Point South Waterfront Park – that were designed with the purpose of mitigating the effects of climate change, especially super storms. And, to gauge what the next crop of starchitects are up to, we scope out four firms from Madrid to Shanghai that are designing innovative city-building projects.

Also in this issue: a profile on Benjamin Hubert, the London industrial designer on a mission to make the lightest furnishings possible; a look at Herzog & de Meuron’s lushly landscaped Pérez Art Museum Miami (in the news this weekend due to a visitor’s act of vandalism); a snapshot of what eight of the world’s top architects are building in the foreseeable future; and a selection of vibrant soft seating options for home and contract settings.

Azure’s March/April issue is now available on Zinio, and on newsstands today in Canada and March 3 in the U.S.
