L’Architecture d’Aujourd’hui is an international magazine, decidedly contemporary and open to the disciplines of urbanism, design, art, and landscape architecture. Under Jean Nouvel’s direction, the magazine is supported by a prestigious editorial board, composed by architects such as Shigeru Ban, Frank Gehry, Renzo Piano and many others among its members.
This summer, L’Architecture d’Aujourd’hui dedicated its July issue to the impertinent and eclectic architecture scene in the United Kingdom.
British Architects were faced in 2018 with the “Living with Beauty” report, written by a public initiative, the Building Better, Building Beautiful Commission (BBBBC), which aimed to determine, with a hint of right-wing, populist overtones, what a “beautiful architecture” was. Far from those “Classical models”, what does “beauty” mean in today’s British architecture?
This AA issue is following the tracks left by the controversial Amin Taha, those more ‘vernacular’ by Peter Barber , those by practices and architects such as Carmody Groarke, Adam Khan, Adam Richards and others like the flamboyant Adam Nathaniel Furman or Muf, to name but a few, who are reinvigorating British architecture by resuscitating “multiple narratives”.
