Published by The Modernist Society, the small-format and currently square-shaped The Modernist (its physicality changes regularly) explores 20th century architecture and design via quarterly, themed-issues.
This is their sepia-tone 45th issue is themed Municipal: 'This issue is a love letter and a lament for the architecture and design of the state and its structures. At a time when the UK government is ideologically oriented towards a ‘lean state’, it seems relevant to ask, ‘what did the state ever do for us?’
On the cover, a Mary Mitchell-designed custom built mound set with reclaimed cobbles on council built playground.
