Issue Cover

Icon  |  ICON ISSUE 206 Winter 2021  

The Activate issue showcases how architecture and design can be harnessed as a tool to activate change, whether that’s spatial, environmental, political or social. Lemma Shehadi interviews Alison Killing, the architect who won a Pulitzer Prize for helping map prison camps in western China, while Flo Wales Bonner introduces us to Post Carbon Lab, a design duo developing algae-based textiles that turn clothes into carbon capturers.

We report on London’s Low Line, a walking route activating historic railway infrastructure, and the Chicago Architecture Biennial, where vacant plots are being transformed with community-focused initiatives. We meet Golden Lion-winning architecture collective raumlaborberlin, multidisciplinary design studio Superflux, and review Herzog & de Meuron’s cultural transformation of a German grain mill. Plus: the Algorithmic Justice League, DSDHA, Somewhere Good, Milan Design Week, London Design Festival and much more.

Icon Magazine was established as a British design and architecture magazine in 2003, by Marcus Fairs, who was the first digital journalist to be awarded with an Honorary Fellowship of the Royal Institute of British Architects. The magazine is part of the Media 10 group and celebrated its 150th issue in 2015, where a redesign took place and it was split into the three sections that you enjoy today - Lifestyle, Architecture and Objects.

The magazine is tailored to appeal to all design enthusiasts, whether that individual has an interest in a specific designer or architect or a particular trend that is taking place. With critiques and reports placed between articles, this magazine supplies readers with both expert opinions and facts on all the latest designs, exhibitions, architecture and cultural movements.

Beautifully presented, whilst being both rigorous and insightful, Icon Magazine provides you with the perfect insight into everything that is happening in architecture today, and what this means for the future.
