Imagine having access to fresh herbs 24×7 via an under-counter herb solution! The Electrolux ‘Herb Garden’ Concept does just that and it provides us the luxury of a self-replenishing indoor garden that expands our cooking capabilities.

ArchDaily has partnered with The Architectural Review to bring you short thematic introductions to the magazine’s monthly editions. Up now: AR’s April 2014 issue, which examines the complexities of architecture photography. Editor Catherine Slessor asks “what happens when controlled views of buildings are redefined by and adapted to new technologies?”
Roland Barthes once observed that there is no such thing as a photograph. ‘Whatever it grants to vision and whatever its manner, a photograph is always invisible, it is not it that we see’, he wrote in Camera Lucida.
