Kinfolk Issue 31

Kinfolk Issue 31 considers the discipline of design in its most ambitious manifestation: architecture.

This issue of Kinfolk explores the opposing forces that shape our physical environments, paying homage to both the architects with dreams too big for city planners to swallow—as in our investigation into the history of utopian design—and the architects preserving their charming urban fabrics from being swallowed, such as Anne Holtrop and Noura Al Sayeh Holtrop, who are holding on to the heritage of their beloved Bahrain as the Arabian Gulf continues to develop at turbo-speed.

Elsewhere in the issue, meet Sharon Van Etten, who talks about why she chose to study psychology while writing her new album, and spend a day in rehearsals with Kyle Abraham—the choreographer making history at New York City Ballet. Writer Ellie Violet Bramley explores the history of marriage, narrating the changing nature of an institution no longer wedded to the idea that death us do part; composer Ryuichi Sakamoto describes the creativity that comes when considering his own mortality; and palliative care expert BJ Miller proposes a new meditation with which we might all rethink the inevitable.
