Aperture 238 - Spring 2020
House & Home
How do homes serve as emblems of a moment, markers of the past, or articulations of future possibilities? The Spring 2020 issue of Aperture considers the meanings and forms of a home, and the relationships between architecture, design, and the domestic realm.
From interviews with leading architects—such as David Adjaye, Denise Scott Brown, and Annabelle Selldorf—and a reconsideration of the irreverent interiors magazine Nest, to previously unpublished work by Robert Adams and new portfolios by artists, including Alejandro Cartagena, Fumi Ishino, Mauro Restiffe, and the duo Randhir Singh and Seher Shah, House & Home considers the concepts of home across diverse geographies and time periods.
