Featured in PRINT magazine's Regional Design Annual

Ten years after September 11, the site of the World Trade Center remains a work in progress. Metropolis commemorated the anniversary with a literal "moment of silence" by removing all headlines from the cover – a bold move rarely seen in mainstream publishing.

Art direction and design: Ashley Stevens

Interiors and product designer Ilsa Crawford is known for using a hands-on, tactile process to create comfortable spaces that put human needs at the forefront. We held a photoshoot in her London studio with Crawford in front of the studio's sprawling mood board to create this Metropolis cover – highlighting Crawford's process, practice and products.
