Mark Magazine #15

Mark Magazine #15

Mark Magazine is by far one of my favourite architecture magazines. Their motto “Another architecture” tells us what we´ll find inside: fresh architecture – the main reason we love this magazine so much.

This bimonthly magazine is structured in 5 sections: Noticeboard (a collage of new projects), Cross Section (short articles on new buildings and architectural subjects), Viewpoint (interviews with architects on the rise), Long Section (in depth articles on buildings) and Service Area (new building materials).

On the August/September issue (October one on the mail, more about that soon) we find an amazing house by spanish studio Ensamble, shown on a collage with embossed textures, something that has become a signature on Mark Magazine covers.

We start with the Notice Board, that shows 34 new projects from around the world. Some of them have been featured in AD, such as the Roskilde Incinerator by Erick van Egeraat and the Bryghusgrunden project by OMA. It´s a very good section to discover fresh architecture soon to be realized. You can find projects from SOM, Fuksas, Manuelle Gautrand, L.E.FT, Nat Architecten, JDS, Asymptote, Rojkind Arquitectos, MVRDV and more.

On Cross Section we find several projects by Arthur Casas, b720, Productora, Shuhei Endo, Nio Architects and more. But there were 2 articles, not buildings, that took my attention. The first was “Speed Symphony”, on the digital sets for Speed Racer by the Wachowski Brothers. Then a graphical article, “Avoid the centre” researches into the relationship between the size of a country and its prosperity, giving us another view on today´s world.

The Viewpoint section has two interesting interviews. The first one is with Dan Wood and Amale Andraos from Work AC (who we also interviewed on video some time ago), on which they talk about their projects and thoughts on megastructures, ecology and humour. Also, they show their projects such as the Diane von Furstenburg´s headquarters in NY, the Public Farm 1 at the PS1, an urban dog house and their urban proposal for Greenbel City in Las Vegas.

Next interview is with AT103, a mexican firm we have been hearing a lot about lately, chosen as one of the 50 hottest architecture practices by Wallpaper. It’s an interesting interview, on which they tell us the story of their office and their design process. Featured projects: Ave Fenix Fire Station, Ozuluama House, Playas del Conchal building and Romero House. For more on AT103, check the Gabriel Mancera building and the Chapultepec Space projects we featured earlier.

The Long Section, which shows buildings in depth, starts with Mountain Dwellings, the latest built work by danish office BIG. Then shows a new museum in Netherlands by Search and the Ordos 100 project by Ai Weiwei.

Then we find more interesting projects, such as the Hemeroscopium House by Ensamble shown on the cover, the Santo Domingo and La Ladera libraries by Giancarlo Mazzanti in Colombia, the buildings at the UNAM University in Mexico and the Elemental project by Alejandro Aravena in Chile.

As you can see, this issue of Mark Magazine is packed with fresh architecture from around the world.
