With our July/August issue we present the winners of our 7th annual AZ Awards! Also, our take on the top launches and installations from Milan Design Week, including the most innovative – and beautiful – lighting from Euroluce; a zeppelin-inspired reading room in Prague; and in the Arctic, a scarlet red art installation marks the end of an era.

Now on newsstands, our July/August issue commemorates the 20 winners of the 7th instalment of our AZ Awards. From an impressive 813 international entries, the top 20 were chosen for their truly outstanding work in architecture, design and concepts, and were revealed during our gala celebration on Friday, June 23, at Toronto’s Evergreen Brick Works. This issue showcases the phenomenal projects by all the winners, including the 50 finalists and People’s Choice.

This year’s guest of honour at the AZ Awards gala was Italian architect Massimiliano Fuksas, whose stellar reputation has been defined by his unique and innovative vision. Before the big night, we sat down with Fuksas to talk about how his personal expression informs his architecture.

Also in this issue, editor Catherine Osborne reports back on the highlights of Milan Design Week, from installations that wowed to the top product launches, and we explore the novel directions lighting is moving in, with exciting innovations from Euroluce, Europe’s largest international lighting exhibition that ran concurrently with Salone del Mobile this year.

Plus, a zeppelin-like reading room lands atop an austere arts centre in Prague; an Artic art installation of scarlet red broadcloth zigzags across the tundra; the projects and concepts that are changing the nature of the kitchen; and more.
