Description

Volume VII, 1970–1974: Individuality Reigns Supreme
For more than 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 design and architecture 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.

1970–74: Individuality reigns supreme: The early ’70s saw seismic changes in architecture and design, as a trend towards individuality manifested in novel styles and construction methods. Futuristic work by Luigi Moretti stood in contrast to practical designs by Renzo Piano or Richard Rogers; elsewhere the first postmodern tendencies could be detected. Japanese architect Kisho Kuramata created metabolic buildings and city planning, while the living landscapes of designers Verner Panton and Joe Colombo opened new vistas.
