This week's magazines: Architectural Review, Icon Magazine

Good news for Architecture aficionados with two beacons of design and architecture, The Architectural Review and Icon Magazine, dropping new issues at Fat Buddha Store this week.

First we have the August issue of design magazine ICON which first looks at a mini-history of world fairs and assesses their impact on the zeitgeist of international design. The issue also looks at OMA's nuanced design of Fondazione Prada fashion institute and compares it with the more brazen Frank Gehry's Foundation Louis Vuitton which opened in Paris last year. Also in this issue is Jamie Hayon’s Game On collection which brings sports together with furniture, Make’s groundscraper lands at Broadgate, the Vienna Biennale and its ideas for change, new pieces from in-demand studio Moving Mountains, Peter Zumthor mentors Gloria Maria Cabral, Piet Hein Eek’s revamp of the holiday home, design polymath Hanna-Kaarina Heikkil√§, and praise for We Made That’s socially-driven practice.

The July issue of Architectural Review also landed this week with articles on their take on modern design and architecture with a specific focus on the House as an architectural statement.

Since 1896, Architectural Review has been showcasing the evolution of the craft and its main associates for like minded people to become inspired and motivated by others with a shared interest. To this day, the review still stands as one of the most popular and relevant magazines in its sector.
They have an interesting website that's worth a look The Architectural Review Website.
