Description

The seventh issue (spring/summer 2022) of the Danish magazine Ark Journal looks to the past and examines how architecture, art and design have interacted over time, connecting the past with the present – history is also seen as a source of inspiration. Readers get to visit locations designed by Frank O. Gehry and Marcel Breuer, among others, as well as the Mexico City-based Esrawe Studio. Ark Journal has 240 pages and four different cover options.

  • Ark Journal Volume VII explores the interaction of architecture, design and art over time, and looks at history as a constant source of inspiration for creating new ideas.
  • We present detailed examinations of architecture from some of the greatest masters, including an early building by Frank O. Gehry and a modest Marcel Breuer house that is not only a home but, for the most recent owners, also a long-standing lesson in how to live well. The Belgian architect Glenn Sestig discreetly transforms a radical concrete masterpiece by Ivan Van Mossevelde, while collector and designer Frederick Hooft simply leaves an avant-garde 1960s villa largely as he found it. We visit a minimalist Scandinavian house in an untamed coastal landscape and a solitary Nordic villa enveloped by nature.
    In Volume VII we draw attention to the heritage of craftmanship, especially Latin American practitioners using materials from the past, and visit Mexico City-based Esrawe Studio and online platform Unno Gallery. A special insert is dedicated to designer and artist Marcin Rusak and his reworking of history, nature and craftmanship.
  • In our popular Case Studies, we range from the archaic to the avant-garde in the extraordinary historic home of a sculptor, and an Arne Jacobsen pavilion by the sea is the scene for design pieces with simple lines and organic forms.
