Our summer issue is shaping up to be a great one with an exciting international focus. On tap, Michael Webb recalls a visit to 2013 Pritzker Prize–winner Toyo Ito’s home and shares his experiences visiting some of the architect’s other notable buildings. Webb also turns his attention to the challenges (and opportunities) facing architects and designers in booming South Korea. From Cambodia, we bring you the story of the New Khmer Architecture of the 1950s and ’60s, and the battle to preserve its rapidly disappearing legacy.
Great, contemporary residential architecture from around the world will get its due, as we explore some compelling new projects in our Workbook section. Rounding things out, we asked some architects about their most loved—and hated—airports. It’s a dishy read to day the least. In the meantime, you can weigh in with your own picks on our Twitter and Facebook pages.
Closer to home, there’s an in-depth look at Bercy Chen’s innovative new green roof system that has exciting residential and commercial applications. And, if you’re in the market for a chaise longue for a new project, our Showroom page has some great suggestions.
