In this issue, The Modernist are looking at all things grand, large, colossal and epic; literally, metaphorically and otherwise.
John Grindrod celebrates the much maligned Millennium Dome. While its initial ambition was perhaps never reached, it could now be said that the world’s ninth biggest building stands today as a monument to a more optimistic time in Britain’s recent past. Meanwhile, Gillian Darley looks at the work of master factory builders Albert Kahn Associates. Not only did they change the physical landscape with their enormous industrial buildings, they also helped shape global economics and geo-politics.
This issue also features some large social housing schemes. Photographers Stefano Sam and Rick Moran take us around Rome’s Nuovo Corviale and London’s Heygate Estate respectively, both lamenting the loss of the ideologies and ambitions upon which these projects were conceived and constructed. At the other end of the scale, Patrick Millar throws off the shackles of our own planet altogether, where he contemplates the almost inconceivable challenges to establishing life on other worlds. With this issue, it’s safe to say The Modernist packed a huge amount into a relatively slim volume!
