Walter Hood transforms run-of-the-mill public spaces--city parks, highway underpasses--into pillars of the communities they serve. His goal: to prove that every place, and every person, can benefit from good design.
With a blend of artistry and commercial savvy, Patricia Urquiola enthralls tony Italian furniture makers--as well as BMW, H&M, and high-end hotel chains such as Mandarin Oriental. It’s a beautiful business.
