Latest Issue : Jan 2018

Welcome to the January digital issue of ADF magazine

Featured on this issue’s cover is the multi-sport pavilion and classroom complex at Francisco de Vitoria University designed by “architect of light” Alberto Campo Baeza, photo © Javier Callejas. Jack Wooler reports on the Madrid project that has been precision-designed to fill the building with light – see page 43.

In addition to the above, James Parker reports on the deceptively simple look of a pioneering new autism inpatient unit, painstakingly designed for its highly specific clinical purpose – see page 35.

This issue includes show previews of Surface Design Show, held at The Business Design Centre, Islington from 6-8 February – see page 29, and ARCHITECT@WORK, which will return to Olympia National Hall, London for its 2018 edition on 24th and 25th January – see page 31.

This month’s features will look at the potential to take a fresh look at roof design and create more sophisticated structures (see page 49); discuss the rise in render’s popularity for new buildings, and its use in creating desirable as well as long-lasting finishes (see page 51); explore the innovations in home heating (see page 61); and look at reasons for specifying concrete staircases and what factors to bear in mind when doing so (see page 66).
