Monu #21 Interior Urbanism


“Interior Urbanism” is the theme of this issue, wherein dealing with the urban scale and urban aspects of interiors – and especially of public interiors – is central. Different approaches to the topic are put forward, among them Jonathan A. Scelsa’s suggestion that today’s museum architecture is informed and driven by urban grids; Brenden Cormier’s vision of the city as a massive aggregation of individuated interior environments; an illustration of the rich and varied interiors of public libraries by Candida Höfer; plus a special examination of Hong Kong. Further, MVRDV founder Winy Maas elaborates in an interview on the necessity to be able to personalise your environment.
