d+a Issue No. 097
Architecture is built to provide better living and architects are doing their part in conveying a certain level of uniqueness to keep new buildings universal and interactive. The first thing in mind when it comes to building sustainably is to make people happy and to better lives. In this issue that focuses on ‘Sustainability’, we are not addressing the prolonged environmental issues but to celebrate design and architecture that tell a story, as well as carry its responsibility in response to its own contextual aspects. Pritzker Prize winner, Toyo Ito illustrates how he designed a ‘sound cave’ that is an opera on its own. Another Pritzker Prize legend, the late Dame Zaha Hadid shares her final collaboration with BVLGARI with the latest B.zero1 Design Legend ring. In Prime, we delve into Brandon Haw’s new venture after 25 years with Foster + Partners. We talk to Chris Lee of Asylum (Singapore), plant artist Satoshi Kawamoto of Green Fingers Market and M&O Designer of the Year 2017, Pierre Charpin to find out more about their creative ventures and how to remain current. In Pulse, we celebrate the colours of vitality through the eyes of Francesco Lietti and Azad Daniel Haris.
