Grima closed his début editorial with the statement, "Our ambitions (as architects) must be greater than to become the voluntary prisoners of the architecture reserves. We must reclaim the city as an unfinished project, a realm of unending possibility: at the risk of soiling it, the Absolute architecture must be brought back into the kitchen." Domus was founded in 1928 by Gio Ponti, Domus magazine remains one of the most authoritative voices in the fields of architecture and design – an internationally recognised platform of excellence for innovative thinking and influential criticism.


KAMIEL KLAASSE_NL Architects_Architect_Holland

Kamiel Klaasse is principal of NL Architects Architecture is the medium through which we hope to contribute to the understanding of contemporary culture -and to its development. We understand architecture as the speculative process of investigating, revealing and reconfiguring the wonderful complexities of the world we live in. Can we compress banality into beauty; squeeze the sublime out of the obvious? How can we transform, twist, bend, stack, stretch, enhance or reassemble the components that constitute our environment into new and better configurations? Often the projects focus on ordinary aspects of everyday life, including the unappreciated or negative, that are enhanced or twisted in order to bring to the fore the unexpected potential of the things that surround us. By sampling existing fragments of reality and recombining them, gluing bits and pieces together into new coherent arrangements, our architecture can be understood as The Remix of Reality: the architect as Deejay.

LORI NIX_photographer_NY
Lori Nix is a New York based photographer who specializes in constructing dioramas and photographing the results.
"I am fascinated, maybe even a little obsessed, with the idea of the apocalypse. In addition to my childhood experiences with natural disasters, I also grew up watching 1970s films known as "disaster flicks". I remember watching Towering Inferno, Earthquake, Planet of Apes and sitting in awe in the dark. Here was the same type of dangers I had experienced day to day being magnified and played out on the big screen in a typical Hollywood way. Each of these experiences has greatly influenced my photographic work. The series Accidentally Kansas explored my personal experience with the natural disasters of my childhood. The City postulates what it would be like to live in a city that is post man-kind, where man has left his mark by the architecture, but mother nature is taking back these spaces. Flora, fauna and insects mix with the detris of high and low culture."


FRANCOIS ROCHE_new-territories / R&Sie(n) - [eIf/b^t/c]_Architect_www.new-territories.com
François Roche was born on February 25, 1961 in Paris. He studied in Chalon-sur-Saône, and afterward entered scientific preparatory school in Lyon. He left that school prior to graduating, and enrolled at the school of architecture of Versailles. He graduated from this school in 1988. He founded an organization, the name of which changed several times between 1989 and 2001: BoyeRoche (1989); Roche (1990); Roche & François (1991); Roche, Francois, Lewis, Huber, Roubaud, Perrin (1992); Roche, DSV & Sie (1993–97); R, DSV & Sie. P (1998); R & Sie. D/B: L (1999–2001); R&Sie(n) (2001 to present). Their name R&Sie (n) is resulting from the contraction of the group, but it seems that this name refers to RSI, the event "Real, Symbolic, Imaginary" of Jacques Lacan in 1972. The pronunciation "heresy" which seems completely fortuitous, launched by Bruce Sterling via its Wired review in 2006, finishes by him (their) sticking to the skin. François Roche openened in 2011 the studio [eIf/bt/c], "institute of contingents scenario", associated with Camille Lacadee, based à BKK.

Through a number of research project, Japanese architect Yoshiharu Tsukamoto, with Momoyo Kaijima, has established himself as theoretical urbanist. Under the rubric Atelier BOW-WOW, the partners have studied the uniquely Japanese urban phenomenon of interstitial spaces being taken over by strange yet vitally functional buildings that are regarded as marginal by mainstream Japanese architects but have provided the Western audience with a critical and analytic point of viewnecessary to untangle the nature of Tokio's caotic growth.
