From intricate interventions to large-scale beacons, this issue of Frame is about making your mark.
We take a tour of the renewed Rijksmuseum and talk to the man behind its site-specific cosmic canopy, before discussing interior design – and why we don’t need it – with Philippe Starck. Two Scandinavian cities reveal their bright new landmarks, and then it’s off to the Salone del Mobile in Milan to hear words from the wise and seek fresh formulas for the future.
Grand plans for libraries, workspaces, hospitals – and a laboratory for opera
Spatial seduction at the Salone del Mobile, plus new projects by Fabio Novembre, Snøhetta, Wonderwall, Neri & Hu, Olafur Eliasson, Mathieu Lehanneur and more.
