Brooklyn is only a short distance from Manhattan yet it has its own, highly distinctive identity. Talk to Brooklyn’s tight-knit but burgeoning community of designer-makers and you get the impression that this New York borough is widely seen as more romantic, bohemian, less overtly worldly than the more commerce-focused Manhattan. Yet it’s also easy to exaggerate the differences between these two creative hubs. After all, Brooklyn’s new generation of designers are, in their own way, highly ambitious and entrepreneurial. Even so, the ethos of their businesses is more leftfield, possibly more laid-back than those of Manhattan. (by Dominic Lutyens)

TEXTILED SPACES Photography by Deidi von Schaewen

In the “Textiled Spaces” exhibition at Techtextil, Architonic shows selected photographs by the Paris-based artist Deidi von Schaewen.

 

Pictures by the renowned architectural photographer have in recent decades decisively shaped our view of buildings by star contemporary architects such as Frank Gehry, Tadao Ando, and Jean Nouvel. In addition to documenting iconic buildings, her work for diverse magazines (The World of Interiors, Architectural Digest, Vogue, Elle Decoration) and publishing houses (including Taschen and Flammarion) has explored traditional forms of construction in Africa and Asia.
