V&A Magazine

V&A Magazine is published three times a year and carries expertise-led editorial alongside original photography and illustration by some of the world's leading practitioners.

The magazine has been providing a semi-independent editorial perspective on the Museum and its activities since it was launched by the V&A and Cultureshock Media in 2003.

V&A Magazine is available as a single issue, as part of a subscription or free with a V&A Membership.

Marking the V&A exhibition Engineering the World: Ove Arup and the Philosophy of Total Design the Summer issue of V&A Magazine contains two features on the work and life of the great architectural engineer Ove Arup: Hugh Pearman paints a picture of a man who engineered, designed, doodled, wrote doggerel and carried chopsticks in his top pocket; while Jack Zunz, former chairman and original senior partner of Arup, reflects on the 'informality, integrity and forthrightness [of] a very fine human being'. Additionally, the cover, photographed by Hélène Binet, depicts Kingsgate Bridge in Durham, Arup’s final and most personal project.

Elsewhere in the issue, you will find features on Jameel Prize 4 by Hammad Nasar; A World of Fragile Parts at the Venice Architecture Biennale by Brendan Cormier and Danielle Thom; Beatrix Potter by Elizabeth Jacklin; and the V&A’s new research institute by Bill Sherman and Olivia Horsfall Turner.
