There are a lot of architecture magazines out there, so they have to do something special to stand out. AIT magazine, a German publication with English translation on each page, differentiates itself through the quality of its articles.
AIT magazine makes good use of its slightly larger than normal size, being filled with informative and up-to-date articles about the world of architecture and design as well as the requisite great photography. Sections within AIT are devoted to the latest news, features on fascinating spaces and a substantial segment on retail and presentation.

There is nothing better than a beautifully designed, planned out and constructed building. Something that pleases the eye and catches the attention, turning the head of everyone who passes by. London is full of these, and for a long time our favourites have been either the Gherkin, the London Mayor’s office or Tower Bridge – for their modernity and for the latter pleasing lack thereof.
There’s a new challenger on the block however. Rising a 310 metres from the ground, when complete (and it won’t be long now) the Shard will be not only the tallest building in London but the second tallest building in the UK. And it certainly turns heads. You’ve got to love a building that looks exactly like its name – for the record, the Gherkin has an official name but pretty much nobody can remember it as ‘gherkin’ works so very well (ed. Swiss Re?). The Shard really does look like a jagged splinter of glass, stuck into the ground and stretching towards the heavens. It probably represents man’s eternal struggle or something inevitably symbolic like that, but here at Newsstand we can appreciate a building for just being spectacular. So, architects of the future, go out and build something to inspire us – the taller the better. NB
