Out Now: Volume #51: Augmented Technology 

As recent technological advancement became more and more pervasive and sophisticated, its consequences became more dramatically evident. In this context, design takes on a new relevance, in organizing and managing spaces, individuals, relations and ultimately societies. But if this is clear, several questions have to be answered: Who is driving it, who are the participants, who are sitting around the table? Does spatial design currently have a say in this, and if not, how can it participate and intervene?

Volume #51: Augmented Technology includes ‘Deconstruction’, a 32-page insert produced with the Jacob Bakema Study Centre and designed by Loraine Furter. It investigates the deconstruction and reuse of modernist building components as researched by Rotor.
