Making the extraordinary from the ordinary by sculpting in paper, innovating innovation in a decaying paint factory, exploring your inner child while defying gravity. These are mere morsels of the delicious—and staggeringly creative—feast that we are proud to serve up for you in the Big Ideas issue. A first-time attempt on this theme, it proved an exhilarating mammoth of an undertaking. The old adage that the best policy is to leave well enough alone is often impossible to follow when there’s a whole world to explore, discover, and rediscover.
But, heck, I will try. Why wait for me to extol this issue’s many virtues when you can dig right in? Without further ado or idle chatter, we are ecstatic to bring you 100 outstanding projects and products in design, architecture, art, and everything in between. May they inspire you not just to wish for the unimaginable but also to realize it, to be your own dream-maker.
