We are delighted to announce that Design& Build Review has re-launched on new fully responsive platform, meaning for the first time the magazine is available to read on any device of any size.

Whether you are on an iPad, desktop, smartphone or other device, you can read the fully re-designed magazine for free online.

To celebrate our stunning new design and platform, we’ve made this the biggest issue of the magazine yet, crammed with ideas, insight and expert opinion across the full spectrum of architecture.

We turn our attention to the role architects have to play in 2018, asking if the industry has seen a decline in perception and if technology is impacting on its transformation, and get the predictions of a host of industry experts for the year ahead.

It’s clear architecture is currently undergoing a transition, so we also ask if we are witnessing the decline of the starchitect and if new narratives are replacing the celebrity trend in the field.

Looking forward, we also hear from the brilliant Arthur Mamou-Mani about the future of architecture, and find out how his work in robotics is forging a new path for construction, as well as take a look at ThyssenKrupp‘s revolutionary rope-free elevator system.

However, the last month has also been significant for architecture and construction, so we also look at how the industry is set to respond to the collapse of Carillion and take an in-depth look at the newly built US Embassy in London.

Plus we look at some of the latest projects to break ground, as well as those that are finally ready to open and discover some of the key trends for kitchens in the coming year.

For all this, and much more, take a look at the latest issue of Design & Build Review.

Next Issue Preview

In the next issue of Design & Build Review, out in April, we’ll be looking at how green issues are affecting architecture and design, so we’ll see how Bjarke Ingels Group’s (BIG) final designs for its innovative waste-to-energy plant are creating a blueprint for innovative ways to bring the environment into urban areas.

We’ll also examine the use of wood as a primary material for construction and with Dutch Mountains, the largest wooden building on Earth, nearing completion in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, we speak to those responsible to find out why wood may be the go-to material of the future.

Plus, an increase in extreme weather conditions is requiring architects to increasingly take flooding into account in their designs. We take a look at some of the pioneering projects in this area, and hear from some of the architects involved in flood-conscious design.
