Georgian wonderland

Isn't it an architect's ultimate dream, to one day receive a phone call from a newly elected leader of a small but wealthy country asking you to design dozens of buildings to create a new identity for an entire nation? But then, five years later, your benefactor exits the political stage and the fun is over. Jürgen Mayer H., whose office received a huge boost from exactly this kind of extraordinary chance, looks back in wonder. 'Do you know people use the rest stops to host their wedding festivities?'

Focusing on European countries and regions

In December 2013, 64 per cent of the Catalan Parliament voted in favour of a referendum to be held on 9 November 2014. Among the issues on the table: Should Catalonia achieve statehood? And if the answer is yes, should it be an independent state? The Catalan drive for independence is evident on many levels, but also manifests in topics related to architecture. We asked the Collegi d’Arquitectes de Catalunya (COAC) to guest edit our feature on Catalan architecture today… here is their story.

Super sonic

Current trends and developments in cutting-edge building technologies and specific materials are the focus of Section, wherein A10 selects a single project for closer analysis, exploring the connections between concept and result, innovation and use, and beyond. In this issue, we examine Le Métaphone® by Hérault Arnod Architectes. Anna Yudina reports on a project that, besides hosting a concert hall, is itself conceived as an 'instrument of urban music'.

Collage city

Tallinn is a very composite city. Throughout its history, it has been characterized by irregular development, a varied pace of building and the continuous cultural interruptions of the modernist era: liberation from the Russian tsarist regime in 1918, a brief, 22-year period of independence followed by 50 years of Soviet occupation, the structural creation of the 1990s and vigorous integration with the European and global world in the 21st century. The latter has seen a period of economic growth and construction boom accompanied by advantages and drawbacks.

Buildings from the margins of modern history

The church of St Paul's, Bow Common, is an unusual building cherished by some, part of an insider's knowledge of modernist architecture in London. Reverend Gresham Kirkby commissioned the current building in 1958. Designed by Robert Maguire and Keith Murray (then in their early 20s) and completed in 1960, the new building overhauled the design of the previous church to address modern needs and the post-war context. One of the plan's principle ideas removes the centrality of the priest and emphasizes the liturgical act with a top-lit central altar.
