Ark Journal is a semester of architecture and design based in Copenhagen that explores spaces and objects together with the people who created them. The interesting aspect of the magazine founded by Mette Barfod is that it does not treat art, architecture and design as if they were watertight compartments, but investigates their interactions by seeking the sense of Scandinavian aesthetics.
Encouraging critical debate, each issue illustrates extraordinary houses seen not as the sum of many small parts, but as a single narrative interwoven with the life stories, philosophy and influence of those who inhabit them.
Starting from architecture, Ark Journal broadens its gaze to a wider context, reflecting its more humanistic side and celebrating its individual dimension.
Cover: soft (4 different subjects, at the moment it is not possible to select the one you will receive). Labels may be attached if provided by the seller.
Nature and its creative force have always been a source of inspiration in art, architecture and design. In Scandinavia the strong differences between the seasons amplify this awareness of nature and its recurring patterns.
