Latest Issue : Mar 2018

Welcome to the March digital issue of ADF magazine. Featured on this issue’s cover is Brock Commons Tallwood house, Vancouver designed by architects Acton Ostry, photo © Michael Elkan Photography. James Parker reports on how an “extraordinary” student residence in Vancouver became the world’s tallest engineered timber building almost by accident – see page 34.

In addition to the above, Jack Wooler reports on the architectural centrepiece of Canary Wharf’s new residential development One Park Drive, Herzog & de Meuron’s first UK project yet seen in this sector and a porous, cylindrical landmark – see page 26.

This month’s features will talk about overcoming drainage challenges and how ambitious projects can go ahead without direct access to mains drainage (see page 47); look at how getting suppliers on board early can lead to plainer sailing for everyone (see page 51); look at the effect the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) will have in England and Wales (see page 60); and examine the growing number of safety flooring options available to architects (see page 65).
