As more and more people migrate to our world cities, this month the AR is rethinking the rural and reconsidering where lies the divide between city and countryside.
From the depopulating Japanese hillsides of Koshirakura, to the tropical Marshall Islands exposed to radiation following nuclear tests in the ’50s and now threatened by rising sea levels, rural landscapes across the world are under various urgent pressures. With authorities and clients seeking to turn undervalued landscapes into attractive destinations, nature and visitor centres have become popular commissions for architects.
In Reputations we revisit Edwin Lutyens’ eccentric and exquisite examples of English pastoralism, while Typology explores the strange and beautiful world of buildings for animals.
