We recently received the latest issue of Mark Magazine, one of our favorites. If you’re bored of cubic architecture, Mark (April-May) includes amazing work by Jurgen Mayer H and Jesko Johnson-Zahn built in Georgia (the country, not the state). This issue also includes work previously featured on AD: `circulation spectacle´ of the Adolfo Ibañez University by José Cruz Ovalle, Djuric Tardio Architectes‘ Eco-Sustainable House, Vaíllo+Irigaray Biomediacal Research Centre and many more. More information and full index after the break.
We’re off to Georgia, where we uncover the new architectural program – plus a governmental mission – that has birthed the country’s biggest construction boom in centuries. In Norway and Tokyo, natural resources are given two very different architectural functions, while a Stuttgart library channels the Renaissance and a Chilean campus brings students and teachers together. In China, plagiarism is part of the modernization of architecture. Finally, author T.C. Boyle talks about what makes architects such good fiction, while Jan Knippers discusses the importance of abandoning model thinking.
