PAD #13: Design for territories

LetteraVentidue Edizioni

The issue, edited by Marina Parente and Carla Sedini, founder of D4T - Design for Territories Research Network of Politecnico di Milano, aims to contribute to this new field of study helping readers understand the design-led phenomenon, which involves the tangible resources of a territory (like monumental and landscape heritage) as well as the intangible ones (like cultural identity and people values). The main topic of this issue is: How could the design develop the local dimension enhancing and revitalizing the territory at the same time?

Furthermore, with issue #13 we are opening a series with artists’ images that will match the articles with a visual research connected to the proposed subject. Photographer Carla Sedini, co-editor with Marina Parente of this issue, gave us permission to publish a selection of images about “design that is not there”, “design that may be” and “tacit design” within urban territories around the world. We hope that many creatives will interpret the “Suggestions for Design” launched here.

The numerous contributors to this issue are: Miriam Bicocca; Letizia Bollini; Marco Borsotti & Sonia Pistidda; Raffaella Fagnoni & Silvia Pericu; Davide Fassi, Laura Galluzzo & Anna Linda De Rosa; Rosanna Gaddi; Helena Gentili & Daria Casciani; José Luis González Cabrero, Ana Margarita Avila Ochoa, Ana Calvera, Debora Giorgi, Yosser Halloul, Insaf Khaled & Rosa Povedano; Maria Antonietta Sbordone; Reham Mohsen & Andreas Sicklinger; Carla Sedini & Luca Fois.

Architecture: Form, Space, and Order, Fourth Edition is the classic introduction to the basic vocabulary of architectural design, updated with new information on emerging trends and recent developments. This bestselling visual reference helps both students and professionals understand the vocabulary of architectural design by examining how space and form are ordered in the environment.

Essential and timeless, the fundamental elements of space and form still present a challenge to those who crave a deeper understanding.
