Mark magazine is a platform for the practice and perception of architecture at the dawn of the third millennium. Since its launch in 2005, the magazine has proven to be a timely, visual, non-academic publication full of first-hand information from creative people. Mark has a radically international perspective, shining its spotlight on starchitects and new talent alike. The magazine explores the boundaries of architecture and anticipates the industry’s future.
Former Hollywood wild-west Pioneertown now plays host to 350 off-the-grid inhabitants. Mark looks at how they have reappropriated this scripted-setting into a fully functioning town. Architect Linda Taalman shows two sustainable houses she designed, along Pionneertown’s outskirts, while art collector Jerry Sohn reveals three spiritual pavilions. Then Issue #46 visits two houses designed by Jun Igarashi in Hokkaido, stops in with 3D-printing visionary Enrico Dini in Pisa, and heads to a floating school by NLÉ in Lagos before talking to Álvaro Siza Vieira in Porto about his reading habits.
