Villa Necchi Campiglio: Architecture, Design & Fashion Made in Italy

Veranda, Villa Necchi Campiglio, Milano. Image courtesy of Alessandra Cianni Zambotto Every summer, Milan Arch Week casts light on the architectural treasures of the Italian capital of design, offering tours and visits of house-museums. One of the most precious examples of Milanese twentieth-century architecture and lifestyle is the Villa Necchi Campiglio, tucked away on the central via Mozart. Designed by Piero Portaluppi in the 1930s and revamped by Tomaso Buzzi in the 1950s, it was the house of the Necchi Campiglio, a bourgeois industrialist family whose fortune was founded on the iconic Necchi sewing machines – think iPhones today. In 2008, after seven years of restoration, the villa and

Interview with Sonnet Stanfill, V&A Senior Fashion Curator

llustration: Anna Seibæk Torp-Pedersen Sonnet, Senior Curator responsible for twentieth-century and contemporary fashion at the V&A, met us with a welcoming smile in the John Madejski Garden, just before the public opening of the Exhibition Road Quarter at the V&A. An enterprising and positive-thinking alumna (MA 1998) who is soon to become the new Chair of the Courtauld Association, Sonnet is full of good advice, and is hoping to further support the Courtauld’s increasingly diverse graduates in building their careers. After completing your MA in the History of Dress at the Courtauld, how did you approach starting a career in the arts? Before starting the Courtauld, I had a different career,

It's hard to know what to say or do after an event like the Grenfell Tower fire. In this list, we've collected some of the the most

Architecture Week: Interview with Panos Tzortzopoulos and Tom Morgan

Panos Tzortzopoulos and Tom Morgan are recent graduates of Goldsmiths’ BA Design programme. Their final project — which featured in the Goldsmiths degree show - ‘Hyphen’ (16 June - 19 June 2017) — explores the notion of community within the dichotomous contexts of the Isle of Dogs and the Isle of Grain. The project interrogates the relationship between established communities and the ambitions of developers and suggests that collaborative, human-scale approaches to urban planning should be implemented to strengthen communities and allow residents to retain ownership over the areas in which they live. In this interview we discuss the methodologies behind their project and their ideas about ‘H

How does literature provide us with new strategies of imagining our relationship with urban environments? Tom Powell discusses Italo Calvino

Architecture Week: Placing Chandigarh

Chandigarh (after ‘Chandi Mandir’, a Hindu temple located nearby) is the capital of two states, Punjab and Haryana. Jawaharlal Nehru envisaged a new city which architecturally and politically departed from the past – a break from classical and colonial styles. Le Corbusier steered the design of the city, accompanied by European architects working under the same modernist rubric, including Pierre Jeanneret, Maxwell Fry and Jane Drew. Efforts to train Indian students according to this architectural modernism also ensured the longevity of the style in the region. In a city which erased the possibilities for nostalgia by looking to the future, a seamless integration between forced migrants and t

Architecture Week: Concrete as Earth

A few weeks before its closing date in June I visited ‘Japanese House: Architecture and Life after 1945’ at the Barbican. The exhibition eloquently told the story of post-war architecture in Japan, focussing on the interface between houses and their inhabitants. Whilst retaining more typical components of architectural culture, such as models and photographs, the exhibition’s curators also took the audacious step of recreating a full scale building at its centre - the Moriyama House (2005) designed in Tokyo by Ryue Nishizawa. Visitors could walk through the open spaces of the house, observing its idiosyncrasies and viewing the building as a lived-in architectural space - or at least a facsim

Interview: Karen Hackenberg on Art and Ecology in America Today

Arctic Thirst, 2014, gouache on paper, 10.25” x 14.5”, from the Watershed Series Currently working in Port Townsend, Washington, the artist Karen Hackenberg talks to us about her recent trip to London, environmental concerns in the age of Trump, and her latest work. Between painting and traveling, it is possible to find Hackenberg combing the beaches of Discovery Bay. Not looking for shells or natural forms, she is most interested in the rubbish, the objects we purposefully ignore and discard. Taking them back to her studio, the collected debris is monumentalized in her large scale oil paintings. By placing the familiar and disposable in new contexts, the viewer is led to consider the cost o
