Cool off with our biggest issue yet—174 pages of art, architecture, design, and Colorado creatives! In it, we’ve packed 30 pages of summer travel and living, whether that means lounging on your patio or renting a Frank Lloyd Wright for the weekend. That’s right, in addition to modern outdoor furniture and design-centric summer reads, we’ve curated a list of 50 well-designed vacation rentals, including a few FLW properties. (You can even stay at Bauhaus!) But that’s not all. Pick up a copy today for an architectural profile of the new Corky Gonzales Library, a story of an artist who paints with houseflies, a photo essay that’s all about food, and an in-depth interview with sculptor Deborah Butterfield, whose artwork is on display at the Denver Botanic Gardens. If that’s not enough, we’ve included our first op-ed piece “Modern is Not a Style,” stirring conversation on architecture from Arch11. It’s another diverse issue—all anchored in design.
