When Swiss architectural grandee Peter Zumthor spoke of the defining fundamental elements of architecture in his RIBA lecture in London a couple of years ago, he chose to demote form in favour of light, shadow and even smell. Light, in its wonderful immateriality, remains a perennial source of creativity for architects internationally, who continually seek to explore its functional, aesthetic and symbolic possibilities.

neue räume, Zürich-Oerlikon
‘Small and exclusive’ is how neue räume (or ‘new spaces’) curator Stefan Zwicky describes Zurich’s biennial design fair that has become a must-visit destination in the international trade-fair calendar. Known for its quality staging, the 2015 edition – which runs from 18 to 22 November – sees over 100 national and international manufacturers of both classic and new products take up temporary residence in the architectural grande dame that is the old ABB production hall in the city’s Oerlikon district.
Architecture is placed firmly centre-stage this time round, with the fair’s main theme ‘Meuble – Immeuble’ exploring the dynamic relation between furniture and interiors on the one hand and residential architecture on the other. Visitors will be also be treated to special shows and projects, in addition to the top-drawer brands who’ve been selected to exhibit.
All roads lead to Zurich in November…

If necessity is the mother of invention, then housing designed to respond to such crisis situations as natural disasters, military conflicts and accommodation shortages has to be one of creativity’s most productive hotbeds. Turbulent times beget, or rather demand, innovative thinking, as Architonic’s investigation of intelligent prefabricated architecture demonstrates.

The autumn trade fair season began earlier this month with Maison&Objet in Paris. If you weren’t able to get to the French metropolis, you can have a look at the latest trends by going to Architonic Facebook. We’ve documented all the new developments for you there in the form of photo tours.
We’ll also be on location for you at the London Design Festival, running until 27 September, and Cersaie 2015, running from 28 September until 2 October. For both fairs, we’ve put together our tried and trusted Architonic Guides to help you efficiently plan and prepare your visits.
Shortly before colder temperatures return to our latitudes, our current feature article takes a look at natural means of cooling buildings – techniques which, incidentally, are also used in northern climes.

Lose yourself in the London Design Festival
The London Design Festival (19 to 27 September) has always been greater than the sum of its various locations across the British capital. Last year, one of its chief crowd-pullers, 100% Design, celebrated its 20th edition; this year, there’s continued cause for celebration as the big-top event takes up residence for the first time in that architectural grande dame of Victorian exhibition halls, Olympia London. Its barrel-vaulted glass roof and beautiful galleries, not to mention the exhibition’s new layout, will form an ideal backdrop for the design brands on show.
If you’re taking time out from the big trade fairs while in town for LDF, we recommend Mexican architect Frida Escabedo’s installation ‘You Know, You Cannot See Yourself So Well as by Reflection’ at the V&A Museum’s John Madejski Garden. With its layers of mirrored platforms that invite visitors to explore and populate them, the installation aims to get us thinking about identity and cultural exchange. Oh, and when in London, do as the British do: download our carefully crafted Architonic Guide now!
