Abi­ta­re is chan­ging. It is a new pha­se in the long hi­sto­ry of a ma­ga­zi­ne that has been re­coun­ting the great chan­ges that ha­ve ta­ken pla­ce in eve­ry pe­riod sin­ce 1961 th­rou­gh ar­chi­tec­tu­re and de­si­gn. Over the cour­se of the la­st th­ree years Abi

ta­re has ta­ken on a new gui­se. We ha­ve cho­sen fir­st of all to ma­ke it a tool of in­for­ma­tion and ana­ly­sis, broa­de­ning the ran­ge of our in­te­rests from ar­chi­tec­tu­re to de­si­gn in all its forms, in­clu­ding the land­sca­pe, ci­ties, art and tech­no­lo­gy. Now, in the fa­ce of the sud­den ac­ce­le­ra­tion in eve­ry pro­cess of chan­ge, the ti­me has co­me to ta­ke ano­ther step. Our ways of li­ving, thin­king, wor­king, com­mu­ni­ca­ting, mo­ving around, buy­ing things and even ha­ving fun ha­ve pro­found­ly al­te­red. The spa­ces in whi­ch we li­ve and work are chan­ging at great speed, as are the ones whe­re we stu­dy, go on ho­li­day or do the shop­ping; the ob­jec­ts we use, our means of trans­port and the in­stru­men­ts we use to com­mu­ni­ca­te are all chan­ging. For the world of de­si­gn it is an ex­traor­di­na­ry op­por­tu­ni­ty. New areas are ope­ning up and we are ven­tu­ring in­to un­fa­mi­liar di­men­sions. Abi­ta­re wan­ts to re­count all this. It will do so by choo­sing a par­ti­cu­lar point of view, that of peo­ple. What in­te­rests us is to in­ve­sti­ga­te and understand the re­la­tion­ships they esta­bli­sh wi­th pla­ces, spa­ces and ob­jec­ts. In short, we are in­te­re­sted in loo­king at the way we li­ve.
