AMUSEMENT is in context. That seems imperfectly meta and self-referential, but to find something funny or entertaining relies entirely on perspective and circumstance. Enjoyment is found in the heart of the beholder. It’s personal. And the person creating the event, the statement, the idea, the passage will, like any artist with an eye, see what he or she can get away with. J’amuse? You muse.
MAG LAB (Syria-Spain) in collaboration with Ebdaat Magazine (Architectural Creations), ALFA 301 (Spain) and Stardust* (Spain-Italy-Brazil-USA) is organizing the 2010 International Architectural Competition.
In its newest edition Volume #18, published by an international think-tank including AMO, Archis and C-LAB, is raising questions about the condition of sustainability in a world that seems to have yet accepted its importance, but still searches for its meaning.
we proudly present another cover series showing the work we develop…
Volume is an independent quarterly magazine that sets the agenda for design. With going beyond architecture’s definition of ‘making buildings’ it reaches out for global views on designing environments, advocates broader attitudes to social structures, and reclaims the cultural and political significance of architecture. Created as a global idea platform to voice architecture any way, anywhere, anytime, it represents the expansion of architectural territories and the new mandate for design.
