Last year New York City (independently from the state) joined Oregon, California and Washington in offering a third gender option (X) on birth certificates.

Cities are in a constant state of flux as new neighborhoods are developed, gentrification quickly changes areas and demographics, and people come and go. There are few cities where the old and the new live side by side quite as much as in London, where narrow streets filled with Victorian housing sit next to gigantic, glass-covered tech towers. For the third iteration of the city’s Art Night, the focus is fittingly on the idea of "home," based on the context of the local area: South London’s South Bank, Battersea Power Station, Vauxhall and Nine Elms.

In the crowded space of global design weeks, London’s Clerkenwell Design Week has a distinct advantage: not only is the area home to a huge number of architects and design businesses, making it a truly local celebration, it’s also blessed with interesting spaces to showcase the designs in. The installations and shows can be found in everything from a former prison to a church and a nightclub, as well as scattered along the design trail in central London—a far cry from impersonal big-box shows. CDW is now on its ninth year, and this edition includes a mix of familiar names and new faces, and more of a focus on venue content than previous years. Much of the thrill of Clerkenwell is, as usual, seeing the specially commissioned new design projects that are part of CDW Presents, as well as wandering around the area’s numerous showrooms to discover new launches—this year sees over 400 new products launch during the three-day design extravaganza. Read on for our must-sees and highlights from CDW, which is on until 24 May.
