MARK Magazine # 36

We just received the lastest edition of MARK Magazine, one of our favorite publications. There are some absolutely arresting projects and articles in this issue. A personal favorite is a piece on Jean-Francois Rauzier’s art work. Rauzier builds unique worlds out of thousands of photographs. (If you are not familiar with his work visit website, no seriously go.) On a more practical note this issue has a piece on the advantages of smart phones and why and how they can help architects increase their workflow or procrastinate in style. If you want to know what Bjarke Ingels’ reads there is an article on that too, pretty interesting. Among his favorites is Kim Stanley Robinson’s Red Mars and he is currently reading Matt Ridley’s The Rational Optimist: How Prosperity Evolves; I love knowing what architects are reading for some reason, what are you, our readers, reading? As always MARK’s project selection is great; some we have and others we don’t. Those we do have are shown in greater depth or from a different angle.

Mark Magazine #25

If you are an usual reader of ArchDaily, you know that I have always said that Mark Magazine is by far one of my favorites. Fresh works and interview with the young practices innovating in design and construction are presented in a dense, visual format.

The latest issue (March-April) brings the usual dose of projects organized on the Notice Board (unbuilt projects, competitions), Short Section (short reports on new buildings), Viewpoint (interviews and projects by selected offices), Long Section (in depth articles of certain projects) and Service Area (technical).

In this issue Viewpoint presents two practices you might already know by their works presented at AD: Chinese based DnA (works at AD) and Chilean based dRN (works at AD).
