1434: Caruso St John | Lund Hagem | dRMM | EPR | Aida Atelier | 6a | Shatwell Farm | Herzog & de Meuron | Carmody Groarke | Typology: Pub | Eileen Gray | Brexit
In this issue, we visit the UK in the throes of Brexit.
We look at four buildings that explore London’s vernacular – Caruso St John’s Newport Street Gallery; 6a Architects’ Juergen Teller photography studio; Carmody Groarke’s Highgate House and Herzog & de Meuron’s Tate Modern extension.
In Outrage, Peter Cook eulogises the London bubble, a ‘shimmering, volatile, energizing phenomenon’. Jonathan Meades attacks the ‘wretched terminal Ingerlish coalition who believe in the dud fiction of Fortress Brittania’. Jack Self questions the referendum as an act of self-harming.
We visit Shatwell Farm in Somerset, where architectural patronage is rethinking rural building types with surprising results; a stroll down dRMM’s Hastings pier opens a new chapter in the epic story of the great British seaside, while Typology explores the pub and its evolution from inn to eatery.
We also feature the winner of the inaugural AR BnB award, a mini retreat in Norway by Lund Hagem that scooped the top prize over the Ace Hotel in London and a bunk-bed hostel in Tokyo.
