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 cover (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.
We live in an age of immense change and hypersensitivity, with an acute awareness of how much everything we design, build and produce will resonate now and in the future.
The sixth volume of Ark is dedicated to the brilliant minds and talents who have fascinated and inspired us in a time of change: designers, artists, architects and curators with important points of view and priorities.
A prominent voice is designer, creative director and author Ilse Crawford, whose humanistic approach to design promotes well-being. His is a simple mission: to put human needs and desires at the center of his work.
We meet Jonny Johansson, the mind behind Acne Studios, the artist Mark Manders, Amaryllis Jacobs of the Maniera gallery, the duo of architects and designers Malene Hvidt and Nikolaj Lorentz Mentze and the architect / essayist Justine Bell.
