A chronicle of people, places, happenings, and creations we admire.

Mark 57: August / September 2015

One of our favorite architecture and design publications is Mark.  In issue #57 Monica Zerboni investigates OMA’s Prada Foundation, the Mother of all Epicenters, where all Prada culture is created, tested, perfected and exhibited.  Acting virtually as a museum on the old industrial side of Milan, the Fondazione is also a bastion of art, media and creativity.  This among other projects by Herzon & de Meuron, Projekt Praga, Swedish firm Schmitt Hammer Lassen's public library in Aarhus, their concert hall in Malmö, L.A. architect Eric Owen Moss' Pterodactyl building, Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s new Broad Museum are feature in the August-September issue.

The Monocle Guide to Cozy Homes

A handbook for making a home that will stand the text of time, take knocks and scuffs in its stride—and where lives can unfold, children grow up, and dogs run wild. --Monocle

About This Book

This Monocle book tells us how to turn a house into a home. Both a practical guide and a great source of inspiration, The Monocle Guide to Cosy Homes presents the interiors, furniture, and locations you need to know about along with portraits of the people who can make it happen. 

The Monocle Guide to Cosy Homes celebrates the durable and the meaningful through a collection of homes that tell a story. Most architecture and interior books show houses polished to perfection, manicured to the extent that it is hard to imagine anybody actually lives there: they seem to miss the point that homes are meant to be inhabited. They should be able to take scuffs and knocks and to be part of a community, whether in a Chicago skyscraper or on Australia’s sunshine coast.
