Former Hollywood wild-west Pioneertown now plays host to 350 off-the-grid inhabitants. Mark looks at how they have reappropriated this scripted-setting into a fully functioning town.

Architect Linda Taalman shows two sustainable houses she designed, along Pionneertown’s outskirts, while art collector Jerry Sohn reveals three spiritual pavilions.

Then Issue #46 visits two houses designed by Jun Igarashi in Hokkaido, stops in with 3D-printing visionary Enrico Dini in Pisa, and heads to a floating school by NLÉ in Lagos before talking to Álvaro Siza Vieira in Porto about his reading habits.
