This issue introduces eighteen works, among them houses, pavilions, and a church, conceived by twelve architectural offices. Differing in location, scale, and programme, they nevertheless share a common attitude (which could be called restrained) and a commitment to the expression of space that is both ideologically pure and of exceptional beauty. Highlights include two homes by Christian Kerez, Landstedet and Strandvilla by Atelier Lise Juel, and House 1014 by Harquitectes.
