d+a Issue No. 102
d+a issue 102 focuses on the humanistic design values that scratch on the way our community is changing the approach towards design and architecture. The idea of place-making and community-centric manifestos drives design professionals to be more aware and sensitive towards the people they are designing for. As part of being empathetically responsive in our Community Issue, we make a turn to the new extension of Universtiy of Toronto’s Faculty of Architecture by NADAAA to witness the integrative planning between the old and the new. And in this issue, we talk to MVRDV on the inclusive Tianjin Binhai Library in China; a project that considers the surrounding development of the city and its people. Asian designers also take precedence in this issue with projects by Andre Fu of AFSO (Andaz Singapore), Studio Bikin (Jelutong House) and Neri&Hu (The Garage).
