New issue of Forum out now

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:

Zaha experience
Sun, wind and water. And Zaha Hadid. Forum met the Pritzker-winning architect at her latest creation, an art museum outside Copenhagen, which nature‚s elements have helped to shape.

Prefab sprout
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.

Cartoon striptease
In his little black notebook Alfredo Häberli reveals a more personal side. He recently exhibited his drawings in Oslo.

Minimalist? Moi?
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 photography‚s strict performance requirements into a competitive advantage.

Full metal jacket
A folded and sealed copper structure breaks through Svalbard‚s permafrost, formed by the wind and cold and Jarmund/Vigsnæs.

Reviews of new projects from, among others, Santiago Calatrava, Diener Diener, Studio Granda, Claesson Koivisto Rune, SARC and MVRDV.
