Monsoon, moon, and architecture in times of crises and its dialectics around material and imagination occupy us at this time. As the world is celebrating the 50th anniversary of human landing on the moon, we struggle with the irreversible damage to the environment and the politics around sustainability, while continuing, in many ways, to damage not only the environment but human societies and cultures of thinking too. It becomes important to reflect on the human-world relationship through ideas of the cosmos and space, life and society, earth and time. Architecture and design are processes where relationships of human beings and societies as well as human cultures are articulated with the world at large. This includes the cosmic world, the infinite and measured space, the sense of depth and zenith on the globe, movement and time on earth, the skies and darkness or light that surround us.
Domus, the iconic architecture and design magazine from Italy, is now in India. The eight-decade-old monthly magazine has a history of informed debate on architecture, interiors, art and design. The Indian edition, the first Domus exclusively in the English language, seeks to encourage and promote innovation in the built environment. Domus has been brought to India by Spenta Multimedia, India's largest custom publisher. It aims to track and review the latest architectural and artistic movements in India and the world through its exciting content and rich visuals.
