A beautiful collaboration between Toronto-based cinematographer and photographer Peter Hadfield and graphic designer Cameron McKague. Featuring 48 images of drained public swimming pools, the project is a critical exploration of Western society’s relationship with water. Each limited edition copy comes with a watercolour reproduction by Hadfield and all proceeds will go to Water First — a Canadian charity dedicated to addressing water challenges in Indigenous communities.

The Future Book was meant to be interactive, moving, alive. Its pages were supposed to be lush with whirling doodads, responsive, hands-on. The old paperback Zork choose-your-own-adventures were just the start. The Future Book would change depending on where you were, how you were feeling.

A new experimental office on the 12th floor of The Shard in London offers a breath of fresh air … literally. Wrapped in bamboo surfaces and punctuated by living plants, facilities management company Mitie’s headquarters in London was created by local practice DaeWha Kang Design. The biophilic project — dubbed the Living Lab at The Shard — mimics nature from its natural materials palette to the circadian lighting system linked to an astronomical clock.
