New issue of Forum
The new issue of Forum includes an extensive portrait of Zaha
Hadid and her extension to the Ordrupgaard art museum, Copenhagen.
Claes Britton builds a sauna with Swedish designers Claesson Koivisto
Rune in the French countryside. And we take a look at the new trend
of prefab housing, presenting a forgotten masterpiece by Arne Jacobsen.
From the table of content:
Sun, wind and water. And Zaha Hadid. Forum met the Pritzker-winning
architect at her latest creation, an art museum outside Copenhagen,
which natures elements have helped to shape.
Few prominent architects have wanted to associate themselves with
the prefabricated house. Until now. Forum takes a closer look at
a growing trend and draws attention to prefabs by Wilhelmsons, Force
4 and Arne Jacobsen.
In his little black notebook Alfredo Häberli reveals a more
personal side. He recently exhibited his drawings in Oslo.
German prog rock mentality, Japanese Rastafari, horny art students,
a crazy Swiss professor. And a gouty big toe. Forum travelled to
the French countryside to build a sauna with Claesson Koivisto Rune.
The Born identity
A darkroom. In two senses. Mick Born has transformed photographys
strict performance requirements into a competitive advantage.
Full metal jacket
A folded and sealed copper structure breaks through Svalbards
permafrost, formed by the wind and cold and Jarmund/Vigsnæs.
Reviews of new projects from, among others, Santiago Calatrava,
