Rethinking Plastic

As a whole, design has always had at least one eye on the future, and at a time when there is much to be concerned about with regard to our collective future (and present), now is a time for the industry to come together; to share research, ideas and create action that can help foster… Read More >

Jim Biddulph & Iain Monteith, Loader Monteith Architects

Developing a relationship between practice and education is a bedrock of architecture as a profession. But whilst RIBA’s CPD curriculum is designed to keep things fresh for practicing architects through informative talks, Iain Monteith of Loader Monteith Architects took a slightly more unique, and involved, approach to expanding his architectural knowledge.  Having gone to work… Read More >

Growing Material Solutions

We’ve been exploring just what it means to “Reach Carbon Zero” within the built environment, which by and large means a reassessment of the materials we use and the processes involved in producing them. There has undoubtedly been a move toward more sustainable practices as well as connecting more directly with nature – or at… Read More >

Materials for a Lighter Future

Milan Design Week may be behind us now, but the impact of the exhibitions, talks, events and performances can still be felt. Indeed, having had the show back to full strength once again highlights the magnitude of the reverberations it creates within the world of design, and beyond. A series of concurrent themes were at… Read More >

A conversation between: Jim Biddulph & Bryan Oknyansky, Dexter Moren Associates

Not many of us start on our career paths before even completing our higher education, let alone starting it. That’s certainly something you’d say for the notoriously rigorous and involved discipline of architecture. Then again, there probably aren’t too many architects out there who can say that they’re award winning footwear designers either. But Bryan… Read More >

Milan Material Discoveries

Milan Design Week has an internationally recognised reputation as the go-to event for the latest innovations in furniture, lighting and interior finishes – 60 years of showcasing the world’s leading brands will do that.  With the event back to its full strength following the 2-year pandemic interruption, crowds once again flocked back to the city… Read More >

Our Time on Earth

The 24-hour clock analogy, which states that if the world were formed at midnight, with the present moment being 24 hours on, then humans have been around since 11:59:59pm, may not be a new one, but its poignancy never really fades. As a species, we indeed are but a blip in the history of the… Read More >

A Promotion for Reduction

As we recently began exploring, the journey to “net zero” is a complicated but essential one, and one that encompasses many angles, not just decarbonising. Whilst not entirely to blame for the existing issues, as an industry, design must play a key role in altering the ways in which we manufacture, transport, apply and use… Read More >

Reconnecting with texture

As we reached the end of 2020, clinging on to the hope that 2021 will signal a pivot towards a pandemic-free world, it seems apposite to consider tactility, although perhaps ‘re-consider’ is more appropriate? Any way you slice it, last year has seen a sharp reduction in our physical contact with our surroundings as well… Read More >
