Frame #84 samples large-scale urban projects that strive for connectivity, community and communication.

Clive Wilkinson's dazzling European headquarters for Macquarie Bank, Jean Nouvel's media-saturated Milan department store and Zaha Hadid's spectacular Wangjing Soho showroom offer vibrant variants on the city-within-a-city concept. We also catch up with veteran designer and Pentagram-founder Kenneth Grange, whose designs have helped shape the urban landscape of London. Finally, we get away from it all with the otherworldly art of Junya Ishigami.
