Modernism is our antiquity: our modernity is technology. The July-August issue of Domus — the last under editor in chief Joseph Grima — delves into the hybridised, chaotic milieu of 21st-century network culture to capture a snapshot of the contemporary world with a wide-angle lens.
Issue 971 revisits Giorgio Rosa's 1968 Isola delle Rose and presents new work by BIG, Pezo von Ellrichshausen and Kazuyo Sejima. In Texas, pays a visit to Cody Wilson, a 25-year-old law student that has designed the first pistol to be entirely 3D-printed, and in London, reflects on the attribution of the Design of the Year Award to the gov.uk website. Visits Taksim Square to reflect on collective power that raises visibility and action in urban space, and surveys a series of micro-scale interventions by emerging architecture practices in Portugal, while explores Google Glass and its pursuit of augmented reality vision and living.
