Picturesque, July 2000
Presided over by the world-leading architect and theorist Rem Koolhaas, this issue explores all things architecture. Will Self looks back at Hitler’s architect, Albert Speer. Elsewhere, Clive Priddle lingers on the thresholds of doors and porches, while images from Thierry Van Biesen add some much-needed colour to London’s eerily different skyline. Revisit Tank’s inaugural architecture award, judged by Koolhaas among others, or revel in the interiors of the mind in fiction from Edy Poppy and Aamer Hussein.
