d+a issue 102 focuses on the humanistic design values that scratch on the way our community is changing the approach towards design and architecture. The idea of place-making and community-centric manifestos drives design professionals to be more aware and sensitive towards the people they are designing for. As part of being empathetically responsive in our Community Issue, we make a turn to the new extension of Universtiy of Toronto’s Faculty of Architecture by NADAAA to witness the integrative planning between the old and the new. And in this issue, we talk to MVRDV on the inclusive Tianjin Binhai Library in China; a project that considers the surrounding development of the city and its people. Asian designers also take precedence in this issue with projects by Andre Fu of AFSO (Andaz Singapore), Studio Bikin (Jelutong House) and Neri&Hu; (The Garage).
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.
