AR: what’s that on the cover?

What is that on the cover of AR? Is it an UFO? Is it a plane? Is it a bird?

No, it’s… a giant doughnut-shaped kite designed by Alexander Graham Bell to measure the wheather. The picture comes from the catalogue of an exhibiton held at the Nevada Museum of Art, in 2011-2012, on Victorian scientists and the devices they made for seeing through the laws of nature. Landscape futures: Instruments, Devices and Architectural Inventions.

A nice picture indeed. But there are many better reasons to buy this issue. A review of the renewed Dutch Rijksmuseum, designed by Cruz and Ortiz Architects. C-Mine Cultural Centre in Genk, Belgium, by 51N4E. Or the immense project by 84-year-old Justo Gallego Martínez: an enormous ‘cathedral’ in the vicinity of Spanish capital Madrid, a project that probably never will be finished.
