Journeying, Visualising and Documenting: June Newsletter

Floresta Magazine / June, 2021

Here for June and what's going on at Floresta Magazine. This newsletter will be short and sweet, so keep an eye out across our socials for more upcoming projects and announcements.

Journey Project

Over a one-month collaboration poets and designers worked to create posters representing perspectives and experiences of a 'journey'. Designers interpreted a piece of anonymous poetry to create a visual design embodying the words. Check out the project and shop the posters here.

Featured pieces 

Balancing between the real, surreal and imagined: With Laurel Johannesson

Capturing connections between nature and people: With Krista Gurcka

An interview with documentary photographer Krista Gurcka on her personal, emotive and insightful works and ideas. 

Urban gardens in the sky 

As urban populations grow and residential spaces shrink, how do we weave nature into our spaces. Design, explore and nature your own urban gardens - in the sky. 

The environmentally friendly nature of traditional architecture methods 

Iran, China, Greece. Vernacular architecture, meaning design which adapts to the local geopolitical environment. On fusing traditional methods with contemporary design, to design spaces for now and the future. 

The Focus 

(quite literally, what we're currently focusing on)

Very exciting collaborations (yes, more than one) upcoming. 

Next big project also in the works, stay tuned for what it is and how to contribute.
