We’re going green, both indoors and out. In Japan, architect Takashi Fujino’s new office is an interior landscape under a glass roof, while Takeshi Hosaka designed a house for two people, two cats, the sun, rain and wind. Read a letter from Steve Parnell in Sheffield, the UK’s greatest city. Meanwhile, X-TU Architects’ Jeongok Prehistory Museum transports visitors back to the Stone Age, and SelgasCano’s luminous outlet for youthful exuberance is literally lighting up Mérida.
