The November issue of Domus, the latest edited by Guest Editor Jean Nouvel, focuses on urban globalization and its relationship with architecture. In his concluding Editorial, the French Pritzker Prize winner tackles the issue by writing about the right to live well that is being challenged by a world that is cloning itself.
“Living well is fundamental to everyone’s life. It is the starting point: without a happy living space, nothing can prosper. Urban globalization is the result of selfishness with no awareness of the immediate future, of a general absence of empathy”. This is followed, again edited by Jean Nouvel, by a selection of fragments from the book Dériville by Bruce Bégout, an essay on the thought of Guy Debord and the imaginative work of the Situationists.
This is followed in the Essays by Tom Avermaete, Professor of the History and Theory of Urban Design at ETH Zurich, and Michelangelo Sabatino, Professor at the College of Architecture of the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, tracing a history of the global in relation to architecture and the city.

The pavilion, called Hanji House, is visible from the Grand Canal of Venice with its four-pyramidal roofs. The pavilion was designed to be in dialogue with an exhibition, titled Chun Kwang Young: Times Reimagined, as part of the Art Biennale.
The exhibition features 40 large-scale mulberry-paper reliefs, sculptures and installations created by the Korean artist Chun Kwang Young at the Palazzo Contarini Polignac in Venice.
“Hanji” is the name of a traditional Korean paper made technique deriving from mulberry, also known as the “thousand years paper” due to its great resistance.
