Nomad Magazine Issue 13 (Optimism) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. In this issue, we focus on the silver linings on the horizon of the paradigm shift – as we seek to identify its indicators, trace its background and anticipate its implications: nomad 13. We ask ourselves where these changes will take us, and talk to those who are addressing future issues on a daily basis and envisioning solutions for the long run: architects, designers, artists, scientists. Amongst them: Bjarke Ingels with ‘Plan for the Planet’, Anab Jain and Jon Ardern from London design studio Superflux, architect and mayor Përparim Rama, Amy Franceschini on modesty and wisdom as part of the solution, Courtenay Smith on ‘houses that can save the world’, and many more interviews and thoughts that spark optimism and illuminate our view into the future.
Nomad is a magazine for design and society. It views design as a process of shaping the future and as a catalyst for social developments and individual lifestyles. Nomad magazine seeks to change the perspective of design from its status as something extraordinary to a more run-of-the-mill concept, as this gives rise to natural appreciation. Alongside a focus on the end result of the design process and the designers themselves, other aspects are explored through which the effects and future potential of design culture for individuals and society as a whole are investigated within the framework of a broader understanding of design. In this way, Nomad seeks to take new stances. Nomad offers views on a wide range of standpoints: personal and economic, cultural and global. This means that Nomad covers a wide range of subjects, in which design, social and lifestyle issues are inspirationally juxtaposed with questions on designing the future. Nomad is a magazine for new design culture, business affairs and contemporary lifestyle.
