Issue 47 – the Design Culture issue
Does culture cultivate design? And why are we drawn to the designs that we are? What is it about certain patterns, designs, forms or an overall aesthetic that gets my head nodding in appreciation and not yours? A lot can be said for culture cultivating design (religious or national). The very mission of Habitus is and has always been to unearth architecture, design, and its creators that respond to our very unique way of life across the Indo Pacific Region.
This issue, for the Design Culture issue, we took a contrasting approach. We were interested to look at architecture and design that in effect creates a community around it. In some articles the community is one of appreciators, in others a community of end users, or a community of inclusivity.
