Build back better

Reporting From • What do an NFT house and a homeless encampment have in common? Mimi Zeiger explores the correlation from her own home base in Los Angeles.

JO BU RG • Angus Donald Campbell explores the complexity and contradiction of Johannesburg as a recipe for urban renewal.

Business of design

1 What is the true value of third space?

2 How the members’ club concept has found renewed relevance

3 Why hotels need to stop sleeping on sleep

4 How China’s department stores continue to thrive

5 Could retirees help revive urban centres?

In practice

Introducing • Tel Aviv-based architects Sigal Baranowitz and Irene Goldberg explain what Israel’s relatively short history means for the country’s design dialect, how to create strong brand spaces that express the inhabitant’s identity, and why they would like to be respected as architects without the addition of the adjective ‘female’.

The Client • Elin Tufte Johansen, chief human officer and head of sustainability at Norwegian commercial real estate company R8 Property, discusses her company’s ambition to become climate neutral, how proptech can cater to the era of decentralized work, and why she is an advocate of activitybased interiors.

What I’ve Learned • Linda Morey-Burrows – principal director of Londonbased MoreySmith – predicts the pandemic’s impact on residential redesign, explains why the open office is still the way forward, and anticipates a return to analogue.

Influencer • Neha Singh, founder of virtual store platform Obsess, explains how her company makes e-commerce more engaging, why she recommends brands to keep their virtual spaces lifelike, and what she believes is the next frontier for digitized retail.

Tailor made • UniFor helps architecture studio LSM personalize the interiors of 150-year-old law firm Milbank in its first-ever office outside of Wall Street.

Spaces

Modern stone age • In each issue we identify a key aesthetic trend evident in our archive of recent projects and challenge semiotics agency Axis Mundi to unpack its design codes. Here, we look at how Stone Age references are refreshed and used to provide respite from our age of ceaseless change.

Flexible retail • Pop-ups gained traction during the post-recessionary period of the 2010s, a time deemed too risky to invest in permanent locations. Today, facing new uncertainty in the world, we’re welcoming a fresh generation of stores that don’t just pop up and pop down again, but flex, morph and shapeshift.

Work in progress

By a woman, for women • Architecture as an ally for social change. It’s a tall order, and one that may often be more aspirational than actual. Time will tell whether the Gyaan Center in India can live up to its goal of empowering young women in a low-literacy area, but its impactful design and planned future programme suggest it’s off to a good start.

Family members’ clubs • Although the concept of family members’ clubs may not be entirely new, their relevance is. As are the offerings arriving to serve parents who want to combine childcare with work, socializing and sport in a likeminded community.
