Reducing the scale of our needs, going back to smaller scale living, can have many advantages, including the recovery of one of the last horizons of luxury in our contemporary lives: time.Smaller scale designs may not be the solution, but may be a road that could be pursued in a bid to find the right balance between enjoying one’s life with what is truly...
To build a house or a place to retreat to on weekends, by one’s own means, in a remote place such as the wilderness, using recycled materials and, above all, completely off-the-grid, is perhaps one of the last dreams in today’s contemporary society; but is it still possible? English edition.
Living on the move implies a redefinition of the meaning of home, and of the architecture of the space we live in. Nomadism becomes a condition of life, a state where the boundaries are fluid, trans-nationalism and free movement a necessity. English edition.
The border in Boundaries has nothing to do with the political frontier; it is that line that the imagination continuously moves a bit further beyond the horizon, that pushes us to set forth, that speaks about invention, about discovery. It has nothing to do with the idea of limit; it is rather an invitation: it is the line that divides only to join together, that enhances the differences so that it may be possible to set up a true dialogue.
Boundaries is a review founded and directed by young researchers, architects, urban planners, designers, historians and geographers from all over the world: together we link four continents. Our hope is to reach the most different points of view, not to reconcile the opposites, but to enhance them as a value, to enrich the dialogue
A hint to the structure of the journal: every issue will address a monographic theme, around which the topics of the articles will be focused. The section “Ideas” proposes some food for thought, crossing different disciplines. The section “That was the year...” will address the history of the 20th Century and will always be present: it will focus each time on a different event that has been particularly important, an achievement that must not be forgotten because it still constitutes an important lesson.
Boundaries is a quarterly magazine on sustainable, socially engaged and humanitarian architecture. Each issue is monographic, with full texts in English and Italian (facing), and all articles are accompanied by notes and a bibliography for further reading. ISSN 2239-0332.
