Unlimited access to d+a along with 5,000+ other digital magazines and premium stories
d+a issue 101 celebrates award-winning projects, architects, designers and their philosophies. Design philosophy is very personal and it challenges you to go beyond your beliefs. It is a way to communicate with the people that you’re designing for but through an individual voice. In PRIME, Daan Roosegaarde shares his ideologies on nature and technology. His design approach has always been an exemplary proof to how the future of design can essentially affect human being tremendously. In a utopic context, he imagines places and reconsiders spaces in the most bizarre ways, that somehow they make perfect sense. And in this issue, we also take precedence in recognizing Singapore talents with projects by Ministry of Design, Takenouchi Webb, UPSTAIRS_ and RT+Q. Award-winning David Collins Studio also takes us to a special tour into the newly launched Ritz-Carlton Residences Bangkok, located in the iconic Mahanakhon building.
d+a is a Singapore-based title established in 2001. We began as a bi-monthly print magazine and have since developed a digital presence too. Advocates of good design and architecture in Asia and Southeast Asia, we also champion Asian designers who are either trailblazing or up-and-coming. Our excellent relationship with the design and architecture community means we are among the first to publish newly-completed projects, and find out how they are done. These we curate to ensure that they are designed with purpose and intention to have a positive imprint on the built environment. Through in-depth features, we analyse the trends, technologies and ideas sweeping across the industry and their implications on the ecosystem.
