The August 2012 issue, The ill-defined niche, “aims to shift and decentralize the designing part and focus on a more specific idea of the design in the environment – creating a sort of ill-defined niche for burgeoning practices. Practice that goes beyond shaping geometry, to shaping the internal structure of material – making materials within materials, and embedding and weaving multiple materials into complex projects. All the works presented in this issue have an understanding that form cannot be fully explained in terms of their material constituents and the energy within them. The form seems to be something over and above the material components that make it up, but at the same time it can be expressed only through the organization of matter and energy.”
If article titles such as “Landscapes of the living dead: Reanimating the ruin through terrestrial micro-materials” get you excited, you should probably be reading Design Ecologies.
