In this summer issue, Cate St Hill takes a trip to Living Architecture’s
latest quirky holiday let – a pilgrimage chapel dedicated to fictional Essex
everywoman Julie Cope by artist Grayson Perry and FAT Architecture – for our
cover shot. Elsewhere, Shumi Bose visits two OMA art galleries in Milan and
Moscow, Herbert Wright reports from Henri Gaudin’s conservatoire in Soissons
and editor Johnny Tucker is one of the first inside Margate’s newly reopened
theme park Dreamland. We also take a look at the technicolor world of
selgascano’s Serpentine Pavilion in London’s Kensington Gardens, peek inside
the charred remains of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s burnt-out Glasgow School
of Art, and visit Manchester’s new arts venue HOME by Mecanoo. With a new
exhibition on Barbara Hepworth opening at Tate Britain, its curator Penelope
Curtis reflects on her relationship with architects and architecture, while
Rebecca Swirsky reviews an exhibition documenting her youth at The Hepworth
Wakefield. Finally we meet young practice Feilden Fowles, chat to Ole
Scheeren about his upcoming Guardian Art Center, hear from this year’s
Designers in Residence on the Design Museum’s theme Migration, and listen to
Peter Murray discuss the future of London cycling.
