Without the courage to look ahead, we cannot expand the horizon of knowledge and the desire to explore. Courage and fear are the fuel that drives and corrodes the engine of innovation. They are always together and there's never one without the other.
In Michele De Lucchi’s closing issue as Domus guest editor for 2018, he focuses on diversity – and how our persistant search for newness fuels innovation.
Among the features in the December 2018 issue is: a case study of a Swiss house that reinterprets tradition to create a new identity; and the renewal of Helsinki’s cultural plan with the opening of JKMM’s Amos Rex Museum.
A tour of Toyo Ito’s studio in Tokyo, and visual essays on the drawings by Alessandro Mendini and the designs of Gio Ponti – both former Domus editors – are also included in the issue.
From January 2018, Domus will be guest edited by architect Winy Maas, the co-founder of Dutch studio MVRDV.
