Disegno #15


16 June 2017

Disegno is delighted to announce that the summer 2017 issue of the journal can now be pre-ordered online, and will be available from shops in early July.

Highlights include a roundtable with El Ultimo Grito exploring glitches as a cultural critique; a gallery examining a design workshop for refugees hosted by Jerszy Seymour and Cucula in Berlin that prompts reflection on ideas of integration; ideas for queering design from Nina Power and Gabriel Maher; a history of silipol, postwar Italy’s alternative to marble; and reflections on the architectural reconstruction of the Kathmandu Valley following the 2015 earthquake.
