Just arrived to ArchDaily, Mark Magazine #43. New museums keep popping up in the USA. Farshid Moussavi's Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland, Zaha Hadid's Broad Art Museum in East Lansing and Morphosis's Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas. In the Netherlands, Ector Hoogstad gave Eindhoven University of Technology a new library and Powerhouse Company added an impressive villa to their growing portfolio. On the eve of the launch of his new feature film, Oblivion, director Joseph Kosinski talks about his background in architecture. Finally, we checked out Zhujiajiao, near Shanghai, where Atelier FCJZ, Atelier Deshaus and Mada s.p.a.m. realised a milestone in China's urban development, thanks to the reintroduction of a small-scale methodology coupled with respect for local identity.
What better place to explore inventive homes and innovative architects than a country with a housing crisis? Mark #42 head to Poland, where theylook at an architecture scene in transition, checking in on a 152 cm wide house by Centrala and a drive-in home by Robert Konieczny. Elsewhere, Shintaro Fujiwara and Yoshio Muro discuss the challenges of the Japanese architect, and we visit ‘weird Austin’ to discover a house by Bercy Chen that literally emerges from the bush.

Mark Magazine is in my opinion one of the best architecture magazines these days: It has a fresh selection of recent projects, a more in depth analysis of certain works that require it, interviews with young practices, and… did I mention that it has fresh content? You can read all about it on my previous reviews.
And what is best, is that Mark Magazine also likes ArchDaily! We’ve been working together in the past in editorial content, maybe you´ve read my articles on some issues.
