It is said that there is a place for everything and everything in its place.
Of course, there is always a place for chaos, but here at the modernist we do think that there should be some order to proceedings. Was it not Le Corbusier himself that claimed, “to create architecture is to put in order”?
So, with this issue, we are exploring the idea of LAYOUT and how modernism has sought – with varying degrees of success – to bring clarity and coherence to our lives via the use of good design and no small amount of ‘rules’.

I still subscribe to a few small magazines. Only the ones I consider essential. Like NORTHERN EARTH. It is always a good day when a new issue arrives.
Our magazine has been running since 1979, and is now the world’s oldest earth mysteries journal! We have attempted to maintain throughout a tradition of free-thinking, approaching archaeology, folklore and the many constituent strands of earth mysteries without a specific axe to grind – no ideologies or beliefs other than a general political radicalism influence our content. In these days of ‘new age’, pagan, factional and other belief-centred publications, our approach might seem unusual.
Find out more, and examine the staggeringly cheap subscription, at their website.
Just in time for Friday evening reading with the earbuds in: the new issue of THE MODERNIST, which you can learn about and look inside at this link here should you be interested. I love this magazine, and particularly enjoy how hard they’ve worked to keep it fresh and surprising over the years.
Just arrived. Always an excellent, illuminating read. Attend the-modernist.org for yours. This one’s mine and you can’t have it.
In the enduring search for the peaceful rural ideal it can be easy to forget that the ‘rural’ acts as a conduit for the modern. Through their role in transport, militarisation or energy production, these pastoral, bucolic or rugged areas have evolved their own architectures and infrastructures. A dam halfway up a mountain, for example, is a surprise – a startling juxtaposition – but as with so many edifices it is there for one reason: to help us live.
Excellent new arrival. Going to https://www.weirdwalk.co.uk/product/weird-walk-zine-2 gets it to you for £5.50 and postage. It’s very good reading, beautifully designed, and proper weird Albion wintery.
