Welcome to Wallpaper's May issue, where they are focusing on Art, Architecture & Escape at a time when they think we could all use a little escapism…

Taking centre stage in this issue is their exclusive first look at Hauser & Wirth’s new exhibition-and-more space at 542 West 22nd Street, New York. Designed by Annabelle Selldorf, who has also created this month’s limited-edition cover, this is Hauser & Wirth’s first purpose-built, ground-up building, and a major milestone in their ambition to deliver museum-quality viewing experiences. Photographer Brigitte Lacombe documented the building as it neared completion, and shot a series of iconic portraits of 14 artists from the gallery’s roster, from Lorna Simpson to George Condo, which forms an illustrious celebration of New York’s creative energy and vibrant art scene.

Their annual watches and jewellery special – Precious Index – showcases standout steel timepieces, Virgil Abloh’s sherbet-hued signet rings for Louis Vitton, Pharrell Williams’ Mars-inspired collaboration with Richard Mille, and scene-stealing jewels that inspire a healthy disregard for rules. Meanwhile, our architecture offerings include Celine’s impeccable Tuscan manufactory, a Costa Rican jungle retreat, and a Chilean wine estate’s new head office, as well as covetable homes in Arizona, Canada and Mexico.
