Indesign 51 – On Sale Now


November 21st, 2012

After Indesign #50, you might think it hard to get any better – and we don’t say that without reason. Since issue #50, we have been flooded with enthusiastic feedback on our special issue that gives a nod to the past and provides a beacon for the future.

BBC North

While we can’t do a special issue every issue, we believe Indesign #51 is packed with interesting, stimulating and diverse content.

In our second edition of our new lighting section, we explore the pros and cons of LED.

Ross Didier

In another of our regular features, our Indesign Luminary is Melbourne-based designer, Ross Didier – one of the mid-career success stories of Australian design.

We again offer a diverse survey of workplace design from the ultra-sleek BBC North offices in London to the sophisticated adaptive re-use by DesignInc for the Australian Red Cross in Melbourne.

Gardens By The Bay

We also review Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay, fresh from its major award at the 2012 World Architecture Festival and, by way of comparison, Vancouver’s extraordinary Van Dusen Botanical Gardens. We look at BVN’s landmark, award-winning student accommodation at Monash University, which sets a new benchmark in this too often neglected field.

Cessnock Hangar, Peter Stutchbury

We are also delighted to have Peter Stutchbury back in the magazine with one of his occasional rural masterpieces, an airport hanger/museum in Cessnock in country NSW, Australia.

Completing our line-up of award-winning projects is FJMT’s breathtaking make-over of the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tãmaki.

Wang Shu, Pritzker Prize Winner

We also showcase two residential projects – one from Sydney and another from the Mornington Peninsula, an interview with Pritzker Prize winner Wang Shu, and a fascinating look at what could be done for housing in Nauru.
