For more than eight decades, domus has been the world's most influential architecture and design journal. Beautifully designed and documented, domus chronicles and details the most exciting projects from around the world. TASCHEN's domus collection is a major publishing achievement and a must-have item for all design and architecture teaching institutions, practicing architects, designers, collectors, students, and anyone who loves, and lives for, design. Volume II, 1940-1949: Destruction and Reconstruction, shows how even in Fascist Italy, Modernism flourished in buildings and designs by Carlo Mollino, Gian Luigi Banfi, Franco Albini, and Giuseppe Terragni. After the war, Organic Design emerged alongside the International Style. And despite enormous obstacles, the avant-garde continued to thrive in Italy, Switzerland, Scandinavia, and the USA. Printed in Italy.
