Our Buildings of Tomorrow issue, now on newsstands, takes you to four world-class museums by four game-changing architects who are poised to reach a whole new level of greatness: Amanda Levete’s swooping, stingray-shaped Museum of Art Architecture and Technology rising from the banks of Portugal’s Tagus River; Washington, D.C.’s, National Museum of African American History and Culture by David Adjaye, an inverted pyramid clad in lace-like aluminum; John Pawson’s almost-intimate interiors at the new Design Museum in London; and Calgary’s Studio Bell, the spectacular street-spanning music centre by Allied Works.
In Hamburg, after over a decade in the works, the Elbphilharmonie by Herzog & de Meuron finally opened earlier this year. Jacques Herzog shares the ups and downs behind the much-anticipated project, which transformed a waterfront warehouse into a state-of-the-art venue.
Plus: the products and spaces shaping the new bath culture; the driverless car goes subterranean; Patricia Urquiola’s Room Mate Giulia hotel in Milan fuses a sense of grandeur with a playful palette; and the latest in office furniture from Orgatec, Europe’s largest office furniture fair.
