Article Issue 3
June 20, 2011
Article Issue 3 has berthed.
The new issue of Article Magazine is here: The Ports Issue. Examining the social and architectural legacy that shipping has left on Northern British cities, what parallels this has with the decline of industry, and what it means for the re-development of these places. As we import ever more, and shipping has developed, the centres of shipping have moved from populated city hubs, to out of town, on-the-sea business parks.
In this issue, features tell the stories of several of Britain’s ports. Owen Hatherley writes about the physical experience of ports in Britain in contrast to the celebrated industrial locations of Europe. Kenn Taylor examines the impact of Liverpool’s regenerated dockside. Orla Foster looks at the legacy of the Salford Quays, as it shifts from port to MediaCityUK. Further features consider the overkill of containers in trendy architecture, shipping logos, and the unique story of Barrow, a city on the sea dedicated to the manufacture of submarines. There is also a nautical shoot on the beaches of Liverpool, and the regular Life Worth Living review of zines, books and music. This issue includes exclusive interviews with Planningtorock, Vivian Girls and Tennis, as well as a guide to viewing the approaching degree shows along with illustrations by Sarah Abbott.
Issue 3 will be distributed this week, and is available for free in Sheffield, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Nottingham, London and Edinburgh. A full list of stockists can be found here.
