Volume VI — 1965–1969
For over eight decades domus has been the world’s most influential architecture and design journal. Founded in 1928 by the great Milanese architect Gio Ponti, it has consistently highlighted the characteristic styles of each age, from Art Deco, Modernism, Functionalism, to Pop, Postmodernism and Late Modern. Beautifully designed and documented, domus presents the most exciting projects from around the world.
Each volume of TASCHEN’s domus reprint collection reproduces a selection of the magazine’s original pages, packed with articles tracing the history of modern design and architecture. Available as 12 separate volumes covering 1928-1999, this series is a major publishing event and a must-have item for design and architecture institutions and practices, architects, designers, students, and anyone who loves design.
1965–1969: Looking to the future: In the late ’60s, architecture and design changed radically. Functionality, elegance, and faithfulness to materials gave way to experimentation and exploration. Archizoom and Archigram questioned status symbols and consumerism, reflected in the Anti and Radical Design movements. Also featured are Joe Colombo, Ettore Sottsass, Gae Aulenti, Olivier Mourgue, Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Verner Panton, Kenzo Tange, Luigi Moretti, Oscar Niemeyer, and Gio Ponti.
