TLmag 27 Extended: New New York

How can one capture the essence of a place as geographically convoluted, culturally dense, historically layered, romantically charged and creatively vast as New York? For TLmag’s 27th print edition, and in it’s extended online pages, we decided to look past claims that the city has reached its saturation point, and in doing so, we have uncovered a constantly evolving cultural capital. We present a group of maverick architects, artists, designers, curators and collectors who have forged their own paths and are best poised to weather the storm, aware that we cannot avoid reality.

New York is a place of cross pollination and collaboration. From my first impression as a visitor, to internships, employments, interdisciplinary collaborations and the founding of my own practice, I felt a shared ambition or a connected dream; to which I belonged. The energy is stimulating, the diversity inspiring and the competition motivating. Buildings, designs, fashion and art performances can only be achieved through cooperation.
