Welcome to Wallpaper* November issue, dedicated to Smart Art. Leading the way, the ever epic Doug Aitken has created three limited-edition subscriber covers alongside an exclusive 18-page journey into Americana. In a subversive photographic portfolio, Doug has captured time-worn signage in the American West and reworked it with 21st-century text.

WP* November issue takes us also to Paris, where Jean-Michel Othoniel and Johan Creten have transformed a 4,000 sqm former metal workshop into a hive of creativity; and to Warsaw, where Monika Sosnowska has collaborated with emerging studio Architecture Club for an exercise in reductionism. Wrapping up the section is a profile of South Korean artist Kimsooja.

Still in Paris, you can enjoy the revolutionary spirit thanks to Wallpaper* insider’s look at Saint Laurent Rive Droite, which breathes new life into the retail space formerly known as Colette.
