What should we emphasize about this November issue, full of architecture, design and indepth looks at specific themes? The value and leitmotiv of a key term: experimentation, that in our vision rhymes with ‘not temporary’. We have noticed, in fact, that a good project is the one that touches the heart, to ‘inhabit the void’, wagering on communication and dialogue. There are no rigid boundaries between space, volume, dress, body, discipline and approach, when ‘preferred relationships’ are nurtured by emotion and interaction. This is underlined by Kazuyo Sejima, curator of the 12th Architecture Biennial of Venice, with a title chosen to identify the program of this edition: People meet in architecture. The contents of this issue put the same path back into focus. In the feature Interiors&Architecture, the architects explore a way of designing and living, in Italian style, that coincides with a focus on reuse and enhancement of the existing heritage. But there’s more. They also create international works, from museums to offices, that fully demonstrate their design research, tested during the development of previous temporary installations. The protagonists of the Indesign section, from Marco Ferreri to Odoardo Fioravanti, though with different intentions and results, share a constant experimental drive that brings innovation to the fore: of materials, production technologies, typological, formal and conceptual expressions. This is the added value of a transversal approach that also widens the social meaning of design. So, last but not least, the event Milano Fashion Week Design, held during fashion week inside the Ottagono of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, was an initial attempt to shed light on the fertile connections between fashion and the design system, in an open, welcoming city.
