Bernd Upmeyer, Editor-in-Chief, April 2016</p></em><br /><br /><p>What happens in domestic interiors appears to be very relevant for our societies. At least, that is what <em><strong>Andr&eacute;s Jaque</strong></em> argues in our interview entitled <strong>"The Home as Political Arena"</strong> for this new issue of <strong>MONU</strong>. This issue, <strong>"Domestic Urbanism"</strong>, deals with the domestic aspects of cities, and everything that is related to the human home and habitat, the scale of the house, people's own universe, things that are usually hidden and private. According to <em><strong>Jaque</strong></em>, a great number of the processes by which our societies are shaped take place in domestic interiors, the domestic realm, and in relation to very domestic elements such as the table setting, the Christmas tree, or the TV remote control. <em><strong>Justinien Tribillon</strong></em> - in his contribution <strong>"The Fridge, the City and the Critique of Everyday Life: a Tale of Domestic Urbanism"</strong> - describes, for example, to what extent a domestic element such as the refrigerator has changed radically the way we consume the city.

Do hills, cliffs, valleys, rivers, oceans, seas, lakes, streams, canals, or any other kind of geographical feature have the power, in an ever more globalized world in which progressively cities and their architecture look the same, to provide meaning and significance to places, their inhabitants, and users or will all such elements only contribute to an identity that is merely like a mantra as Rem Koolhaas predicted once in "The Generic City"?</p> <p> For the French architect and ...</p> London Underground | Architecture in Print Archinect 2012-01-03T17:37:07-05:00 >2012-01-06T09:46:03-05:00 <img src="" width="480" height="384" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>The last few years have seen a new generation of alternative publications and editorial talent emerge, and London is very much a part of the scene.
