The Room of One’s Own (Black Square 2017) is a typological analysis of the private room. Contributions by DOGMA, Pier Vittorio Aureli, and Martino Tattara. The book is a part of the authors’ long-term research into architecture of domestic space.
Far from being a constant, unvarying architectural form, the room is the product of specific historical circumstances and is therefore always undergoing transformation and change. The architecture of the room is related to one of the most controversial and problematic issues of human history: the domestication of society. The form of the room subtly conveys the ways in which individuals have been differentiated and defined as subjects, with concomitant gender and class associations.
