An architect’s home in Mexico City melds strong geometry with a warm interior

Italian artist Edoardo Tresoldi has used wire to recreate an early Christian church on an archaeological site in Siponto, a port town in southern Italy. The huge installation is located on the site of a church built in the Roman settlement between the 11th and 12th centuries, but deserted following earthquakes in the 13th century. Tresoldi, who specialises in large-scale wire sculptures, has previously created both architectural and figurative pieces for venues including the British art and music festival Secret Garden Party.

Bruce Munro illuminates Australia’s vast desert landscape in a field of light
At Ayers Rock Resort in Australia, British artist Bruce Munro has installed a ‘Feld of Light’ that illuminates the vast desert landscape. Marking his largest project to date, this immersive work — the most recent in a series of monumental light-based installations — comprises more than 50,000 slender stems, crowned with frosted-glass spheres. The sculpture stretches to an area the size of four football fields just beside Uluru — the monumental sandstone monolith in the heart of the Red Centre desert. Throughout the day, the semi-transparent solar-powered spheres collect and store sunlight, coming alive by night through a network of illuminated optical fibre threads. The labyrinth of color forms pathways that lead viewers through the landscape, as well as the installation’s dynamic abyss.

Andres Serrano has a reputation for outrage, so the postcard he is holding face down against his chest as we share the closest thing London has to a New York brunch must be strong stuff. Is it a photograph of a shocking sex act, a broken body, a desecrated Christian symbol? He explains that he has never shown this picture before, but decided he had to include it in his new retrospective in Brussels. It is a portrait of Donald Trump.

Suburban dream: nature and concrete meet in this Canadian home
Don’t let the verdant surroundings of Angela Tsementzis’ Concrete House fool you; this home, perched on a slope within the quiet and leafy location of Toronto’s Moore Park Ravine, is conveniently located only a 15 minute drive away from the city’s downtown center district. This urban oasis was built for husband and wife John Pylypczak and Diti Katona and their two children. The couple, who run a branding studio, wished for the design of the 380 sq m home to be centred around their passion for nature, and ‘pure, honest and refined aesthetics.’
