Mark Magazine #46

We recently received the latest issue of Mark Magazine. This issue’s main theme is “Into the Wild, Breaking new ground in Pioneertown”. In this edition you can find in depth previously featured projects by AD, like Torus by Norisada Maeda, The Umeå Art Museum or the work of Australian practice, Lyons. Full info after the break.

From the Publisher. Former Hollywood wild-west Pioneertown now plays host to 350 off-the-grid inhabitants. Mark looks at how they have reappropriated this scripted-setting into a fully functioning town. Architect Linda Taalman shows two sustainable houses she designed, along Pionneertown’s outskirts, while art collector Jerry Sohn reveals three spiritual pavilions.

Then Issue #46 visits two houses designed by Jun Igarashi in Hokkaido, stops in with 3D-printing visionary Enrico Dini in Pisa, and heads to a floating school by NLÉ in Lagos before talking to Álvaro Siza Vieira in Porto about his reading habits.
