For the travellers and globe-trotters out there, Architonic's editors take a careful look at the aspect of airport planning in the article 'Architecture between heaven and earth: extraordinary Control Tower Design' where we examine the striking constructions by Zechner & Zechner Architects, 3dReid, and HOK Architects. What is more, in Czech Republic, Prague International Airport became a rather unlikely venue for an exhibition of select design from central and eastern Europe called "Designeast.eu OFFLINE".
The second article in our magazine is also dedicated to travelling, albeit in more metaphorical sense. There's no denying books' profound and centuries-old ability to captivate, enthrall and transport with libraries being central to gathering, preserving and archiving the literary heritage. In recent years however, libraries have been undergoing a big technological change, the phenomenon which we survey in 'Knowledge Bases - Library architecture from antiquity to the digital age'.
Finally, Architonic's editors' latest travels take them to Italian comune of Marcon, Venice where behind the closed door we discover some of the best-kept secrets of the recognised Italian lighting manufacturer Foscarini.
