The Tipping Points in architecture and design as an ineffaceable illumination as materialism ossifies architecture in boundless creativity as a mirror of our age.

This issue will challenge the idea of tipping points through three factions. Firstly, Bifurcations – on how does the tipping point phenomena arise and was there a pinch point, break-off as too where the tipping point occurred. Secondly, Fault lines – on what did the tipping point leave exposed? Was it an open chasm? Is there a shift between two factions that caused this tipping point? Thirdly, Consequences – on what are the consequences of the tipping point? Was there an impact on the current condition?

Each contribution to this issue will offer a different perspective on current tipping points in fashion, designing architecture and making models, computing in architecture, post-cinema and communication design through to the practicing of architecture and the allure of objects that cause fault lines in our relational ecologies.
