Latest Issue

Memory, Memorials and Identity: this month's issue investigates how design and architecture can reflect and shape who we are, from monuments confronting living history - like gender equality or police brutality - to memories created in virtual space.

Plus interviews with Grace Wales Bonner and Elizabeth Diller
