Highlights from this week in London. Read about everything from architecture to food and delve a little deeper into London's culture.

Issue 37

We take a fond look back at some of Roger Moore's most treasured moments and marvel over the new craze of Mobitecture.

Life on Wheels

Forget micro homes because there is a new architectural trend in town. Say hello to the art of Mobitecture, the innovative new design craze that allows you to live a life of adventure on the road, with your home on your back.
Who says that your home has to be fixed to the ground? Wouldn’t it be much more fun if you could transport your favourite room with you, wherever you are? Recently, Mobitecture has become even more hi-tech than before, with creations such as kitchens on wheels and campervan bikes on offer.

A new and exciting book by design and architecture writer, Rebecca Roke, illustrates all of the weird and wonderful inventions of portable architecture. Featuring 250 different structures, this book is like illustrative poetry about living life on the highway. In addition to creative, hybrid designs favoured by travellers, Mobitecture is also considered as a great way to combat some major global issues, including homelessness.

So, whether you are an ambitious traveller trekking the world’s mountains or a voyager exploring the depths of the deserts, this book will help you discover Mobitecture in all of its exhilarating forms.

A Peak inside the Creativity that Lies within Hackney

Nestled within Hackney’s community, lie some of the most creative souls in East London. Photographer, Jenny Lewis, delved into this artistic pocket of London and discovered and a sea of talented creatives.

Lewis began her journey when she sat down with Isobel Webster, a fashion designer based in Hackney. After photographing her, there was a lightbulb moment, and four years later Hackney Studios was born. In order to discover the talent hidden in Hackney, Lewis asked Webster for the details of the next person she should photograph and the portfolio of creatives organically grew. After hopping from place to place and photographing an array of different artists in their private workspaces, Lewis gushed: ‘they deserve to feel celebrated…there’s a lot of pride and soul in this project.’

The beauty of Hackney Studios is that it dismisses artistic pecking orders and embraces artists in every form, because after all, all artists have one thing in common: passion.

An Ode to Sir Roger Moore

Sir Roger Moore, more frequently known as the nation’s favourite James Bond, sadly left us earlier this week, leaving all 007 fans in deep distress. The only positive things to come out of this tragic event is that we get to look back on the good times and remind ourselves of why Sir Roger Moore was such a gem.

Taking over the role of James Bond for a solid twelve years, it’s not hard to understand Moore’s undeniable success in the film industry. However, despite his acting achievements it was Moore’s contagious personality and wit that made him such an icon.

During his later life, post 007, it was his side-splitting Twitter presence that got people talking. One of his favoured tweets to this day includes giving away his secrets to a successful marriage: ‘be charming, gracious and save me a slice of cake.’ Let’s not forget the time he revealed that those famous James Bond love scenes weren’t as easy as they appeared: ‘you usually do that romantic bed scene in the middle of winter when the studio has been shut for the entire weekend.’ That doesn’t sound so hot and steamy to me!

His humour and his modesty were rare traits to find in such an esteemed actor and it is safe to say that he will be sincerely missed.
