WELCOME

F Dear Readers,

or professional reasons alone, I am particularly passionate about exceptional pieces of real estate and innovative, sustainable architecture. On my trips to London, I have paid several visits to The Crystal, an impressive building on Royal Victoria Dock. It’s fascinating not only because of its unusual exterior, but because it is an extraordinarily successful example of a green building. On the roof of the glass structure, which opened in 2012, rainwater is collected and turned into drinking water. The building is also equipped with sensors that detect how many people are gathered in a particular

space. The ventilation then adjusts itself accordingly. The Crystal uses solar and geothermal energy. Finding solutions that protect the environment is one of the crucial issues faced by the real estate industry. Architects increasingly opt for sustainable designs – not just in London, but around the globe. In Singapore, which has been playing a pioneering part in these endeavors for several years, the government has decreed that no resident should live farther than a 10-minute walk from their nearest park. Green spaces that are lost to new developments have to be recreated on the buildings themselves. Consequently, the frontages of skyscrapers are covered in lush greenery, and tropical gardens are in bloom on terraced buildings. Half of the frontages of the 40-story CapitaGreen office tower boast a rich plant cover. On its roof, there is a flower-shaped sculpture that captures the wind with its “petals” and pipes it into the building’s cooling system. This is only one example of innovative architecture in this fascinating “City of the Future.” Energy efficiency is a crucial purchasing benchmark for many of our clients. Other, very diverse demands also play a part: for some people, a charging point for electric cars in the underground parking lot is essential; others insist on sustainable energy generation. The goal is the same, however: conserving our planet’s finite resources. This was also our aim during the construction and fitting out of our new company headquarters in Hamburg’s HafenCity district, which we moved into in 2018. Special faucets save more than 25 percent of drinking water, for example. We are also delighted that the building was awarded the highest category of the HafenCity environmental certificate. But no matter what you are looking for in the property of your dreams, let the stunning real estate from around the world that we feature in this edition of GG inspire you. We hope you enjoy your read!

WELCOME

2020 – it’s (almost) here! Artificial intelligence, blockchains, bitcoins and tourists taking off to the moon. When I listen to prophecies of what innovations the near future will supposedly bring, I always find myself reacting with a mixture of curiosity and doubt. Yes – the world is moving faster than ever before. Whole industries are redefining themselves and now functioning completely differently from how they used to only a few years ago. What I realize is that we need to keep up with these rapid changes to really be able to form an opinion. Having said this, we also need a positive attitude and an open mind. Which is why we’ve decided to begin this new decade with a whole issue dedicated to the future: Meet the digital entrepreneur Caro Daur, who has created her own business in the social media world, supported by her community of two millions followers on Instagram. Get to know Sir James Dyson, the Gyro Gearloose and probably most successful inventor of our time, who transforms the most boring household appliances into sexy designer objects. Visit the new headquarters of the world’s biggest tech companies and discover architect ­David Adjaye’s latest project – a development in Abu Dhabi that will unite the world’s three Abrahamic religions. Follow us into the new decade and get to know the future! Wishing you a healthy & happy start to the New Year! Yours,

THANK YOU CONTRIBUTORS

Glow magician 

AURÉLIE PAYEN  Paris-based makeup artist Aurélie Payen has worked her magic on celebrities such as Robin Wright, Kate Hudson, Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne and Tom Hanks. She has also collaborated on productions for magazines like Vanity Fair and Elle. For the cover of this edition of GG, she conjured a magical glow onto Caroline Daur’s cheeks.

Selective 

CHRISTOFFER RUDQUIST  Swedish photographer Christoffer Rudquist lives in Tokyo where – much to his wife’s dismay – he often tries his hand at Japanese cooking. Christoffer only takes photos of things he is personally interested in: architecture, the natural world, technology – like the Dyson “Supersonic” hairdryer on page 64.

Artist

Viewfinder 

MONICA VINELLA  Italian photographer Monica Vinella has traveled the world for more than 20 years. She always finds new perspectives, most recently in the high-tech metropolis of Singapore (starting on page 20). Monica is particularly interested in images that contrast with her life in a village of 500 inhabitants in the Ligurian countryside, where she and her partner grow their own vegetables.

  DOUGLAS FRIEDMAN  The photographic work of this New York native who calls Marfa, Texas his home, has been called wizardry. For the cover story of this issue, Douglas Friedman put social media icon Caro Daur center stage in Christian Liaigre’s Paris showroom. Douglas has previously proven his extraordinary eye working on other fabulous GG cover stories. Recently, he photographed Ladurée chairman ­David Holder and also beauty entrepreneur Dr. Barbara Sturm.

Student of Hindi  GARETH PHILLIPS  Photographer Gareth Phillips commutes between the remote coasts of his home country Wales and the peaks of the Indian Himalayas. We wonder whether he was speaking in English or in Hindi during his photo shoot with vacuum cleaner pioneers James and Jake ­Dyson (page 62).

ingapore’s latest landmark is ten year old: 

The Marina Bay Sands, a hotel complex that embodies the path Southeast Asia’s most sparkling island nation has taken. The three 200-meter towers house 2,500 hotel rooms, a conference center, a theater, public spaces and cultural centers. They also boast a 700-ton flat steel roof that features a pool, restaurants and 360-degree views of the city. The complex is the continent’s largest city resort. From here, you have a first-class view of the Gardens by the Bay ecopark, a combined parkland and high-tech oasis, and of the ArtScience Museum. The latter is a fascinating lotus-shaped structure that lives up to its name, showcasing groundbreaking temporary and permanent exhibitions at the intersection of art and science. Welcome to Singapore, the city-state at the southern tip of Malaysia. Millions of visitors arrive at its futuristic Changi Airport every year to discover a global trading hub whose roughly 5.6 million inhabitants speak, think and do business in English, Chinese, Tamil and Malay, and were educated in a British-inspired school system. The city’s Asian traditions are not immediately obvious. Conversely, you instantly realize that the high-tech quarter around the Marina Bay Sands has an ecological soul. The socalled Supertrees in the Gardens by the Bay are artificial metal “plants” on which ferns and orchids grow. The structures use sunlight to generate clean energy, facilitated by a highly sophisticated system of steam turbines and photovoltaic cells.

attract many prospective residents from abroad as well as a growing arts and cultural scene. The excellent education system does the rest: Singaporean students regularly score the highest marks, and came out on top in the international Pisa study. But older people are also not forgotten: Practical help is given, for example extra-time when crossing the road. Those who are equipped with an electronic seniors’ card can hold it to a sensor at the pedestrian light to get additional time to cross. All this can be put on the statute books because Singapore has been ruled by the same party for over 60 years. Having a monopoly on power seems to come with certain advantages. You could almost forget that in this city of the future, homosexuality is still criminalized, graffiti artwork will land you in jail and death by hanging is the punishment for those who are caught with more than 500 grams of cannabis. part from futuristic modern-

nostalgia is as much in evidence as ever, for example at the historical Botanical Gardens, one of Asia’s most beautiful. The city’s Chinatown boasts a fascinating interplay between low-rise houses, brightly colored signs and temples right adjacent to metro stops. Also not to be missed: Little India with its maharaja-style buildings, and the picturesque pastel-colored structures on Arab Street in the Muslim quarter. Western Singapore stretches along Orchard Road, where apartments fetch a million euros and one high-end mall is going up one after the other. The ION Orchard, for example, is home to numerous boutiques, galleries and restaurants like the TWG Tea, Southeast Asia’s most stylish tearoom.

t’s the morning after the amfAR Gala in Cannes. Last night, Caroline Daur was pos-

ing on the red carpet in a glamorous designer gown in front of the screaming crowd of photographers. Now, casually dressed in jeans and a sweatshirt, she’s sitting right next to me in the backseat of a cab with her laptop on her knees, concentrated on a contract with one of her cooperation partners. Before leaving for the airport, Caro – as she’s known not only to her followers – quickly drew up a video concept for a major fashion brand and posted it on her Instagram account. Within seconds, her community of more than two million followers starts reacting: They are liking, commenting and clearly enjoying taking part in her everyday life. The young entrepreneur has also built a powerful network outside the digital world and is on first-name terms with personalities like Moncler owner Remo Ruffini, Valentino chief designer Pierpaolo Picciolo, cult designer Virgil Abloh (Off-White, Louis Vuitton Men) and the entire ­Fendi family. When the son of the fashion designer Elie Saab got married earlier this year in Beirut, Caro Daur was on the guest list. Prestigious fashion brands such as Prada, Fendi, Valentino and Cartier, but also big companies like Apple, Tesla and Warner Bros., have all collaborated with the 24-year-old from Germany. Having arrived in Paris, we are headed to lunch on the patio of the Hotel Costes. Up to 500 million people use the Instagram app daily, but still, very little is known about the business behind the beautiful pictures, so we have arranged for a personal interview. When we were preparing for this meeting, you asked me not to use

you prefer to be called?  To me, the word influencer sounds empty, devoid of content. It’s not a branch of any profession nor does it say anything about a person’s daily work. It’s simply descriptive in that it says what a person does: They influence somebody else. Anyone can do that as far as I’m concerned. The word influencer was suddenly used a few years back when – after appearing out of nowhere – social media technologies were developing incredibly fast. If you ask me, it’s got a negative connotation. No, I rather would describe myself as an entrepreneur. I founded my own company a few years back. I am personally involved in every detail, every single day – from management to individual projects. I read contracts, hold PR meetings, answer emails and phone calls, draw up concepts, work behind and in front of the camera and entertain people 24/7. You could almost compare my job to a reality show! On top of that I take drama lessons, I have worked on a pilot movie in London and I invest in startups. Those are all activities that I don’t communicate on Instagram so much and things where I’m still treading carefully. Let’s see what’s next.

show? 

You’re one of the big names in the fashion business today and you’ve created a community of two million people on Instagram who follow your every move. Which preconceptions or false impressions about your job would you like to set straight?  This job is no bed of roses! I can tell you that, and I try to communicate this in my daily Instagram stories. Its not easy to portray the right balance. On the one hand, I’m quite aware of the unique privileges that come with it and how incredibly grateful I can be. But there’s also a lot of pressure involved that you cannot see. I wouldn’t be able to do it without ­discipline and a whole lot of hard work. It can really be incredibly stressful and I go through a lot of ups and downs. During the various Fashion Weeks, for instance, my schedule is extremely full and things are very intense. On really crazy days I may attend eight dif-

I don’t have to, but it gives me the opportunity to present my style. If I’m cooperating with a brand like Prada, for instance, I like to wear Prada to support their collection and as a gesture of respect toward the brand. Plus, I always think: Fashion Weeks are only two months a year, what’s wrong with powering through? So this means I’m constantly on the go, for an entire month. During this time I only get to sleep an average of four hours a night. I plan my outfits for the next day, packing up returns, the pieces of a collection that have to go back to the designers … Wow – you really do that yourself?  Sure! I do everything myself. That’s why I’m always racing against the clock. I arrange my own meetings, fittings, events, and even choose the locations myself. I try to plan things as efficiently as possible. In the early mornings before the day starts, I love to fit in an exercise class. That’s how I unwind and recharge my batteries. The first show then usually starts around 9 am. I buy snacks on the way there and eat my sandwich, fruit and sweets in the car in between shows. In the evenings I usually have elaborate seated business dinners planned. What do you love most about your job?  Oh, there’s so much! Meeting interesting people, traveling, discovering new cultures and interesting biographies. It’s a huge privilege, which I’m absolutely aware of. From the very beginning, I have always tried to look at my job from something like a bird’s-eye perspective and so I don’t think the “scene” has changed me all that much. This is something I also owe to my parents. They’ve always been there for me when I needed them and they have taught me true values and the important things in life. Of course I know very well how treacherous social media can be: how you can get caught up spending far too much time on your phone and “forget” all about real life. But I would also like to stress how many opportunities there are in the digital world. My community is very cool – I’m constantly exchanging views and ideas with

my followers, learning from them, getting tips from them and even meeting them in real life. How does that work? Can you explain?  I am connected to people from around the globe. My community is so diverse and made up of people from all over the world. When I post a question on Instagram, I always receive an answer almost immediately. My followers are faster than Google! (She laughs) Here’s an example: I’m constantly on the lookout for good cafés and so I asked my followers once: Hey, what’s your favorite coffee shop? After receiving their answers, I drew up a list, which I called the Daur Coffee Tour, and shared it with them. I love doing things like that because they don’t only help me – they’re useful for all of my followers. When you post a question to your forum of two million, how many answers do you generally get? 

That depends on the question, of course. If it’s a very specific question, I don’t get all that many replies. But it gets interesting when I get the same answer from completely different people! That’s when I know I’ve probably hit a hot spot. You can really do market research that way. How would you describe your followers? 

Sophisticated, stylish, roughly my age, but often older too. I’d say between 25 and 35, mostly women. I know my followers very well, actually. I’ve had people from my community approach me quite often and find myself blushing with embarrassment because they’re so much cooler than I consider myself to be (She laughs). Sometimes people will say: My god, don’t you think you’re way too transparent and that you share too much of your private life? That’s when I think: But who am I, after all? Where have you set yourself lim-

– it’s my dream and that’s why I spend several weeks each year taking drama lessons in L.A. I already told my mom that I wanted to become an actress when I was only 11 years old. In kindergarten, my dream was to become an opera star, but that ended the minute I realized that I couldn’t sing (She laughs). Later on, in high school, I took a drama class. That’s when I realized that acting was what I really wanted to do! It was so much fun that I joined the drama club as well. After graduating from high school, I couldn’t decide at first whether to study political science, drama, business or law. I finally decided to go to business school since I’m an anxious type and wanted to be sure to have a solid foundation on which to build. While I was at college, I also worked for Michael Page, a headhunter company in Hamburg. You were always a straight “A” student – is that true?  Yes… almost. After my final exams in high school I was only two points away from what I had been hoping for. While the other students were already celebrating, I was applying to retake one of the Abitur exams. I wanted a top result! So for two weeks I did nothing but study, and guess what: After repeating the oral exam to improve my average, I still missed my objective by one point. But at least I tried!

its to what you will share? 

I’m always listening to my gut feeling and so I only do things I’m really comfortable with. In that sense, I’m my own barometer. I think many people spend a lot of time thinking about and planning things that their community will approve of, but I find it more important to be spontaneous and natural. Although of course I sometimes say to myself: Come on, Caro, what was that about? You should have considered what you were going to do for at least three minutes longer! (She laughs.) But it’s also important to make mistakes. I always try to reflect on what I do and show the good as well as the bad. I draw the line when it comes to illness, family-related things and very private topics.

You’re quite an ambitious person, aren’t you.  Um,

yes, “quite” is putting it mildly. (She laughs)

About those jobs you took while still a student: What were you more interested in, earning money or gaining experience? 

I was interested in both. I did a lot of different things, including tutoring and spot-hitting for a catering company. I worked whenever they needed me. Sometimes I would begin at 4 am doing breakfast service at a hotel in Hamburg. Other times I flipped crepes at Heide Park Resort, a big amusement park in Soltau, not far from Hamburg. But I wasn’t very good! (She laughs) Maybe those part-time jobs weren’t always fun, but I definitely gained some amazing experience. Today, looking back, I often think: Isn’t it funny that I once flipped crepes in an amusement park? Instagram was founded in 2010 and your community, the people who follow you on your personal account, grew right along with the app. In 2005, after Nike, the sports company, had approached you regarding

In the early days, my father used to often ask: Do you really have to do all that? But today, he has a lot of respect for what I do and tells me often: Wow, I know very few people who work as hard as you do! Do your parents understand your job?  Yes. Because they know my daily routine – if you can call it a routine – what I do day in and day out, and they support me wholeheartedly. I work in fashion, lifestyle, beauty and fitness, and these areas all overlap. If I go to a film festival like the one in Cannes, for instance, I meet people from many d ­ ifferent industries – people who work in fashion, beauty, film, music and lifestyle.

Towers shooting up like mushrooms: In the case of the Hy-Fi tower in New York, that was true in a very literal sense.

THE ARCHITECTURE OF LIFE If the 20th century was the century of physics, the 21st belongs to biology. So says architect David Benjamin, who’s pinning his hopes on bricks made of mushroom cultures and plant waste. At The Living, his interdisciplinary studio in New York, his work ranges from developing the intelligent and organic city of the future to improving airplanes. An encounter with a man of many talents and unlimited imagination. WORDS: Silke Bender  PHOTOS: The Living NY

Both Warhol and Basquiat have had a lasting influence on the art world. In addition to the pictures Warhol took of Basquiat, this book of plates includes as yet unpublished photographs of Madonna, Grace Jones and Keith Haring.

Time Atlas

Niina Vatanen, Kehrer, approx. € 50

What exactly is reality? In this illustrated book, Finnish artist Niina Vatanen explores our subjective perception of time. The book consists of personal photos as well as imagery taken from the internet, old encyclopedias, newspapers and guidebooks. The skilled way she combines them reveals how visual memory, personal experience and accepted history affect and influence each other.

Born to Ice

Paul Nicklen, teNeues, € 100

BOOK

Thanks to his call-to-action, close-up photographs of the natural world, marine biologist and National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen has become a top influencer on Instagram (@paulnicklen). His illustrated book Born to Ice is an honest portrayal of the Arctic and Antarctic as endangered ecosystems. Through the non-profit organization SeaLegacy that he co-founded, the conservationist is working hard to save our oceans.

TIP

Ricardo Bofill

Gestalten & Ricardo Bofill, Gestalten, € 49.90

Ricardo Bofill is one of the most renowned architects and visionaries of the 20th century. Gestalten has now dedicated a monograph to the Spanish aesthete that also celebrates his most famous works, such as La Fábrica, Walden 7 and La Muralla Roja. The book contains spectacular photography by Salva López and essays by Nacho Alegre and Douglas Murphy.

Street “Wave Shelf,” designed by Oliver Haslegrave for T ­ ortuga Living, is a well-conceived storage item made of handcrafted wood. Approx. € 345.

For more than 25 years, photographer Phil Penman has been documenting the changing streets of New York City. He has captured historic moments such as the terror attacks of September 11 and also worked as a paparazzo, keeping tabs on celebrities such as Michael Jackson, Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez. This book of plates is a compilation of his most impressive work, which captures both the glamor and the filth of New York’s city streets.

Sun and Moon

Mark Holborn, Phaidon,approx. € 70

Sun and Moon is a magnificent visual history of astronomical research, devoted to the burning human desire to understand the universe. It focuses on observations of the night sky, starting with charts of the solstice in Neolithic times and ending with the latest images taken by a modern space telescope. It’s the perfect book for anyone who loves to look up at the stars and speculate about the other worlds that might be out there.

White tree tower

T

he Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto  is a master rule breaker: Sometimes his buildings are inspired by tree houses, on other occasions they resemble caves and sometimes their interiors and exteriors seem to merge. Together with French architects Oxo Architectes, Nicolas Laisné and Dimitri Roussel, Fujimoto won a design competition organized by the city of Montpellier. Their winning entry: the 17-story L’Arbre Blanc apartment block, which also boasts offices, a panoramic restaurant and an art gallery. The amoeba-shaped structure was completed this year after a construction period of five years. Its 193 balconies project from the white metal façade like drawers. They balance the airflow around the building and provide a natural cooling system for the units.

WORDS: UTA ABENDROTH; PHOTOS: SFA+NLA+OXO+RSI (1), CYRILLE WEINER (1)

The L’Arbre Blanc building in Montpellier features spectacular balconies. The shade they give lowers the structure’s energy consumption.
