Ideas of living

This is an issue about how domestic space organizes our surroundings and habits and values and bodies. It is also about convention: how norms became norms, and how design might gently or violently pull them apart to propose new ways of relating to ourselves and each other in our most intimate settings. It offers a few terms for discussing what can happen when architectural ideas come home.

We invited Teyssot to lecture in conjunction with our 2014 exhibition Rooms You May Have Missed, which explored ideas of domestic space and inhabitation through the work of two contemporary architects operating in distinctive contexts, Bijoy Jain in India and Umberto Riva in Italy.
