Architecture and design magazine Domus is welcoming Japanese architect Tadao Ando, its fourth guest editor in a series of ten internationally renowned architects who for one year decide on the content of ten issues of the magazine. Tadao Ando is the first Pritzker Prize winner among the editors for the 10x10x10 project that Domus launched for its 100th anniversary. The December issue, entitled “Recovering Italy” and edited by Fulvio Irace, sees the publication of a monograph about the 1941-born architect from Osaka as well as a manifesto that Ando devotes to questions surrounding eternity.
“All things must one day weather and crumble. It could be said that architectural history is a trajectory of challenges against this truth in search of the eternal,” says Ando in his manifesto. “I would like to make eternity, an idea that humans have been pursuing since time immemorial, the theme of Domus 2021.” “We are honoured to have Tadao Ando become part of our team,” said Maria Giovanna Mazzocchi, president of Editoriale Domus. “I am certain that the lucid world view Tadao Ando has held throughout his career will be a great opportunity for Domus readers and the civic society that gathers around our publication. Like Ando, we too are convinced that architecture is able to change society.”
