This latest issue takes us on a whirlwind design tour with stopovers in Tokyo, New York, London and Auckland.
November 17th, 2010
Indesign #43 dishes up the latest on the Melbourne Docklands’ transformation, with a focus on three distinctive new projects in the area: HASSELL’s innovative design of the new ANZ Centre, the Harbour Family and Children’s Centre and the Myer National Support Office.
Also in Melbourne, a warehouse-cum-residential space opens its doors to reveal the green and yellow signature touches as part of a renovation by architecture firm Multiplicity.
Other projects on show within Australia include the Westpac Contact Centre with its quirky use of hedges to separate work areas from breakout zones, as well as the new School of Economics and Government nestled within the bushland campus of the Australian National University in Canberra.
With a flick of the page, a quick visual trip to Japan treats us to the inside the new Giorgio Armani store in Tokyo.
Other highlights this issue include an introduction to industrial designer Mark Armstrong, founder and director of Bluesky as well as a fleeting education in bamboo’s place as a material in design and architecture.
