A NEW LOOK AND A NEW ISSUE...

From the Editor
By BETH DUNLOP
   

The Fall issue of MODERN comes to you early, at a point when summer is not truly over. Most of us are sweltering, even those of us (me included) who have managed to get far enough north so that the thermometer manages to dip into the low 70s at night. As I write this, I am looking across a sand dune at a large body of water, which is a fine activity for the end of summer.

 

But enough about summer: even from a distant northerly perch, I am so pleased to be introducing MODERN's current issue to you on our beautiful new website. The website gives us enormous flexibility to post original and timely stories (a great asset for a quarterly magazine as MODERN is), as well as to enhance our print edition with slide shows and even an occasional video. You will see more "live" reporting from shows and sales, galleries and museums.

 
 
DESIGN'S POLYMATH
By NICOLE ANDERSON
 
Architect, set designer, digital innovator, and product designer are just a few ways of describing David Rockwell. His multifarious approaches have expanded and redefined the architectural practice to encompass a remarkable breadth of projects that stretch from buildings and furniture to theater sets and virtual environments. Yet all share a common denominator: creating unique spatial experiences that change and enhance people's relationships to their surroundings.
