MAS Context releases its thirteenth issue, OWNERSHIP


© KLAUS


The concept of ownership, the exclusive rights and control over a property of any kind, has existed for centuries and in all cultures. Whether state, collective or personal, ownership is probably one of the most determining factors not only in defining our built environment but in the way we have shaped our society. But what if the way we live has changed? Can we redefine ownership to adapt it to the needs of the society? Can that redefinition provide new opportunities for our built environment? This issue will be dedicated to examining ownership in our current culture, ancient traditions, legal system and physical environment.

The thirteenth issue of the quarterly design journal MAS Context, OWNERSHIP, is already out. All the content is available for free at www.mascontext.com, where you can order a printed copy of the journal and download the electronic version.
