about this item

Forms on the front line: Architecture and design in the context of WWIIFounded in 1928 as a “living diary” by the great Milanese architect and designer Gio Ponti,domus has been hailed as the world’s most influential architecture and design journal. With style and rigor, it has reported on the major themes and stylistic movements in industrial, interior, product, and structural design.This fresh reprint of domus’s coverage of the 1940s brings together the most important features from adecade of destruction and reconstruction. Even amid the bombing raids inflicted on Milan,domus continued to publish through much of the war, charting the design zeitgeist, while managing a successive turnover of editors and editors-in-chief during Ponti’s “interregnum” between 1941 and 1948.The pages from this period record reports and features on modern industrial design and furniture,new prefabricated houses, American academic architecture, the building projects ofCarlo Mollino, Gian Luigi Banfi, Franco Albini, and Giuseppe Terragni, as well as the postwar flowering ofOrganic Design.domus distilled
