The Modernist is a quarterly printed publication about 20th-century modernist architecture and design. This issue discusses the theme of light and it’s guest-edited by Simon Buckley, creator and director of the Manchester-based Not Quite Light project.


In this issue:


  • Isamu Noguchi’s much-copied Akari light sculptures
  • In praise of shadows — a consideration of Western and Japanese design traditions
  • And the struggle for light in the design of cities
