ICON #063

icon 063 | September 2008

This month, icon hits the road, touring the wildest and remotest parts of Norway to see architects squaring up to a formidable challenge: outstanding natural beauty. We visit the remarkable architectural interventions scattered in a sublime landscape of glaciers, mountains, forests and fjords.

The rest of the features also boldly go to extreme destinations. We visit the future, where Doshi Levien and Dunne & Raby are steering research for microchip giant Intel. We hack through the graduate show jungle to pick out the gems from this year’s student work. And we brave the inhospitable environment of a restaurant in Paris to meet design impresario Didier Krzentowski, owner of Galerie Kreo.

In news, there’s new work from Greg Lynn, Daniel Libeskind, Marije Vogelzang, Work AC and Olafur Eliasson, plus the best of the London Festival of Architecture. In review there’s Buckminster Fuller, My Bloody Valentine and Adolf Hitler.
