Ark Journal Vol. 05

Nature and its creative force have always been a source of inspiration and motifs in art, architecture and design. In Scandinavia the stark differences between the seasons amplify this consciousness of nature and its recurring patterns.

In Volume V we examine the relationship between art, architecture and design and the natural world. Leading figures from those worlds including fashion designer Simone Rocha share their personal perspectives on the magical intertwining of people, objects and nature.

In an exclusive book extract, we share the personal spaces Donald Judd created in Marfa, Texas, that are a living testimony to the artist’s visionary philosophies of art and architecture.

Accompany us on a personal journey to China with renowned photographer Hélène Binet and to Terra Ignota (Foreign Lands), chemigrams by Åke E:son Lindman featured in an insert.

In the Swedish archipelago Christian and Ruxandra Halleröd take us into the forest where they built a house that seems as if it was just placed in the midst of the old-growth trees.
