Domus November issue is the last one directed by Winy Maas.
“So here it is, my last issue as this year’s guest editor of Domus. At times like this, it is tempting to take a look back at what has been achieved, and I will do that a little. But even so, I think it is more important to look ahead. After all, these ten issues have been about the future – the future of architecture, the future of our cities, the future of our planet... and the future of our species. In order to look into the future with clarity, you need to understand where you have come from, and this is where looking backwards a little can help. It’s why in this November issue, we’re summarising the whole year of Domus articles, compiling and visualising all of the data that was published alongside each article, as well as some metadata about the articles themselves.
What was the average floor area of all the projects we have featured? Which parts of the world did we cover in the most detail? Which global urgencies did we give the greatest focus to? And in doing so: what did we forget? By evaluating our work in this way, we will better understand the effectiveness of this small contribution we have
made to the future.”
