We are proud to announce that Luca Silenzi, Spacelab Architects founder and director, is featured on the March issue of Domus – the prestigious international architecture and design magazine edited by Joseph Grima – with a paper on “architectural memes”.
“We think we’re original, but in reality we are carriers of, and work on, the ideas of others. Luca Silenzi borrows a concept from evolutionary theory to describe the processes involved in the communication and transfer of forms in contemporary architecture” (Domus 956, March 2012)
Compared to the article “Architectural memes” published in our Imho Blog in March 2011, the Domus essay introduces new perspectives and a working hypothesis for a taxonomy of architectural language (we’re working hard on it, stay tuned!).
The paper (here is the link to the Op-Ed/text-only format in Domusweb) is complemented by a complex infographic curated by Density Design.
[PS: Special thanks to Joseph Grima, Zoè Chantall Monterubbiano, Paolo Ciuccarelli, Marco Ferrari, Azzurra Pini, Laura Bossi: each one knows why].
