"Domus 1072, on newsstands this October, focuses on memory and the risk of oblivion in the world of immediacy. In his Editorial, Guest Editor 2022 Jean Nouvel talks about the importance of past and future time and how today’s architecture can be able to create emotions and make us reflect. “Let us remember that active modernity, the modernity of permanent invention, demands to be connected to more distant inventions and more ancient knowledge. We no longer have time to think. We no longer have time to remember”.
Next, in the Essays, architecture critic and historian Irénée Scalbert writes about how buildings designed by architects need to be seen, need to be looked at and admired, and yearn to be photographed and publicized. Next, Valter Scelsi writes about the work of Swiss master Peter Zumthor. “What the classicism of the architect evoked by Zumthor suggests to us is twofold: on the one hand, the work of composing a work can be seen as a simple inference, on the other hand, it can be understood as something that acts through a form of resonance, a sort of progressive involvement”.
