Introducing The Royal Tenenbaums of architecture and design: “Serge often roused himself from a serious conversation with, ‘Chris, let’s go get a sandwich.’ This was in fact a rallying cry for martinis,” recalls Christopher Alexander of his mentor Serge Chermayeff, the charismatic Russian tango-champion-turned-design-legend who began the creative dynasty featured in this issue’s 32-page cover dossier. Meet Ivan Chermayeff, the original Mad Man, Peter Chermayeff, aquatic architect, and Berlin’s newest spark plug, Sam Chermayeff, with essays, interviews and memories by Carson Chan, Thomas Demand, Michael Rock, and Hans Ulrich Obrist. Elsewhere Juergen Teller and Irina Kulikova maraud in Sylvie Aubrey’s masks; Cornelius Tittel resurrects the sex and successes of Jiri Georg Dokoupil; the 20th century’s best-dressed journalist, Hamburg media myth Fritz J. Raddatz gets canonized and so much more.
