What do you do in a breathtakingly beautiful historical Southern Italian coastal city when you’re young and bored. The same stuff you do in the grey suburbia.
The Tomorrow online/print magazine presented at the Monditalia exhibition, in the 2014 Venice Biennale.
At first this exhibit caught my eye in the Biennale mainly because of the retro airtravel-ey flipboard display. But the actual project was a little buried behind the first impression, and it still takes a while to explain what The Tomorrow is aiming to be, as it launches on the 7th of September (thetomorrow.net). First, you have to be familiar with the Swiss presentation in the Biennale, which offers a short explanation for the upcoming magazine:
Following Burckhardt’s and Price’s critique of the traditional university system, ‘Lucius Burckhardt and Cedric Price – A stroll through a fun palace’ will function as an architectural school under the leadership of Italian architect Stefano Boeri with Lorenza Baroncelli. It will welcome and connect students in a worldwide network of thinkers, schools and researchers, enabling them to reflect on how the contemporary landscape is changing. This network will produce a digital daily and a weekly print magazine titled The Tomorrow.
I think what is most interesting about the magazine, is exactly its position as a magazine, with an online presence, extending in to the social media, built around discussions and talks in the program of an exhibition in a biennale. So it’s very networked by definition, which is a whole different ball game for architectural discussions found in many current journals and educational settings.
