The August/September issue of GRAY features Alabama-born architect Jennifer Bonner, founder of the creative practice MALL and a recipient of 2019’s Architectural League Prize for Young Architects and Designers. An associate professor at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, she recently completed her first built project: Haus Gables, a home that housed her family in Atlanta, Georgia (before their recent move to Portland, Oregon) that draws on southern design typologies and the crashing-together-gables of her 2014 research project Domestic Hats, which explored roof typologies in the American south. Written by GRAY’s senior editor, Rachel Gallaher, and photographed by Christopher Dibble, the story explores Bonner’s distinctive approach to her practice, in which she serves as both designer and developer on most of her projects. Elsewhere in the magazine: a visit to Seattle ceramist Akiko Graham’s studio, an essay on the state of design criticism by Glenn Adamson, and an interview with MoMA curator Paola Antonelli on the XXII Triennale Milano.
