The latest issue of The Modernist invites us to travel. The global pandemic has put our collective brakes on, and the act of escaping and escapism seems more necessary than ever before. Inside the new issue, we get to wander through the concrete sea defences at Llanddulas, set metaphorical sail on Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye, get aerodynamic in the insanely beautiful prototype BAT cars of the 1950s, and take a pilgrimage to Düsseldorf to trace the influence of the city's infrastructure on the mighty Kraftwerk.
The Modernist is a quarterly publication about architecture and design in the 20th Century (fact). It is also a passionate, witty, academic, and thought-provoking read (another fact).
