Domus in the Eisenman Collection
Domus is an architecture and design magazine founded in 1928 by Gio Ponti and Giovanni Semeria, who envisioned a monthly magazine with an international perspective that would circulate ideas of style in homemaking and furnishing. Over the years, Domus has explored wide-ranging trends and issues in the fields of architecture, the applied arts, industrial design, art, urban planning, editorial and advertising graphics, and digital communications.
