when we heard ace art/chitecture magazine T-R-E-M-O-R-S had done a space issue, we couldn't wait to see what they'd covered – so we got in touch. editor Maksymilian Fus Mickiewicz kindly shared an advance proof of the mag, which we've chosen some visual highlights from, and his thoughts on 'why space?' and 'why now?'
"thanks to commercial space tourism," he explains, "space is on trend. but T-R-E-M-O-R-S goes beyond this to re-examine NASA, space colonisation and space architecture, and, in doing so, show the anxieties, aspirations and imagery that have defined this void or 'outer' space. the final twist, as with all good science-fiction, is to bring the reader back to Earth quite literally. the greatest spacecraft after all is Spaceship Earth – so this issue was about championing ideas for future design and technology in space but also for our own planet"
packing in interviews with folks like NASA space-architect Brent Sherwood and articles on everything from space elevators to Edgar Martins' latest work, the beautifully-designed issue runs to 160 pages, and launches this Saturday in London with an equally weighty line-up of music. if you're not in town, you can pre-order a copy now
as befits an architecturally-led title, T-R-E-M-O-R-S investigates former Soviet science and space facilities (above) UFO-inspired houses (below) and how Buckminster Fuller’s vision for a better planet became Disney Land’s most iconic ride (top image)
following the recent Chelyabinsk meteorite impact, the magazine looks at space rocks – bringers of death, origin of life and the ultimate manifestation of the sublime
taking a detour into art and fashion, the issue features the work of architectural miliner Keely Hunter and artist Mariko Mori (below)
finally, nothing to do with space would be complete without an intergalactic hat-tip to Sun Ra, in this case an article by Digby Warde-Aldam with new collage work by Eleanor Barnard (below)
