Publisher: Archis, ISBN: 9789077966631, Format: Softcover newsprint-magazine, 72pp 240 x 330mm
If public space is in retreat, under pressure from decades of neoliberal policies, how is shared space evolving? Civic space becomes activated according to time, in a synaptic negotiation between a variety of actors that include people, administrations, and technology.
In this instalment of Volume, a variety of authors investigate these physical and virtual spaces, as well as the kinds of agency used to negotiate them, through the lenses of institutions and the public. Designed by Irma Boom Office, it offers contributions by Andrés Jaque, Martin Roemers, Mitra Azar, Domenico Di Siena, Amelyn Ng, Ben Cerveny, Aiwen Yin, Danilo Capasso, Indy Johar, and others.
Volume is an independent magazine that sets the agenda for architecture and design. Created as a global idea platform to voice architecture any way, anywhere, anytime, it represents the expansion of architectural territories and the new mandate for design.
