In issue number 41 (themed LANDSCAPE), acclaimed Manchester designer Trevor Johnson joins the modernist magazine, alongside Craig Johnson and Lily Platt and they remind us that it can be cool to be square.

'Trevor forged his reputation in the days of the 80s & 90s Madchester rave scene with designs for the legendary Hacienda nightclub and its owners Factory Records, also creating branding for some of the region’s leading organisations including Manchester United FC, Manchester International Airport, and Granada Television, and in a close association with many of the region’s main architects and developers was at the start of Manchester’s urban renaissance.'

Guest Edited by Corinna Dean

We can read landscapes as dynamic relations between the human, the non- human and the worlds they inhabit, always incomplete and in a state of transmission, undergoing processes of decay and growth, enhanced by ecological systems or degraded by misuse. These changes are crucial in terms of how we look back at history and forwards in terms of responsible programming, custodianship and care. This Landscape issue attempts to reveal these changes whether it is through an artificial incision, as was the case of the reconfiguration of the Serpentine Pavilion, designed by Herzog & de Meuron with Ai Weiwei, into a Sussex landscape or the design of an ecological park in the shadow of the Bridgewater nuclear park at a time when white energy was celebrated as a solution to cheap universal energy.
