On the Journal:
'The ‘Pin-Up Desert Extra Special’ commences just over halfway through and the magazine morphs again into something different – more experimental and less concerned with remaining in rarefied architectural space. ‘Some thoughts about desertness (Dubai to Dune)’ by Shumon Basar is a creative essay on the ‘fearfully sublime and dreadfully liberating’ desert – and is a constant source of fascinating facts and illuminations from architecture (for example: architects don’t know how to make the windows of the indoor ski resort in Dubai not keep cracking under the temperature difference), to film and TV, and personal experience.'
