The international point of reference for architecture, design and urbanism
Domus was founded in 1928 by the architect Gio Ponti, who was joined in 1929 by the publisher Gianni Mazzocchi with Editoriale Domus, which was created specifically to publish the magazine. Since then Domus has been a point of reference for architects, designers, students and professionals in the sector, while also providing them with a valuable work tool for keeping up to date and gaining in-depth information.
Entirely bilingual (Italian and English), Domus is international in both its contents and circulation, with 46% of copies distributed overseas in 89 countries. In recent years several local editions have also been established: Chinese in 2006, followed by Russian in 2008, Israeli in 2009, the Indian and Central American editions in 2011, the Mexican edition in 2012 and the german edition in 2013.
From 2018 to 2028, the milestone of 100 years of publishing history , 10 world-renowned architects taking turns at the helm of the magazine, starting with Michele De Lucchi.
“My Domus will be dedicated to objects, their value and their meanings”. De Lucchi has conceived a list of keywords, including rebellion, silence, emotion and chaos, which he will associate with each of his editorship’s ten issues. Architecture will encounter design and contemporary art, as well as anthropology, economy, meteorology and philosophy; architecture will not be “vertical” but in a dialogue with other disciplines.
