Abstract

Examines the concepts of landscape and environment on one side and domestic and interior on the other, with reference to the exhibition 'Italy: The New Domestic Land¬scape' (1972). The author studies the understanding of living explored by figurative art, highlights the Chilean artist Roberto Sebastian Antonio Matta Echaurren's investigation of the living space in his paintings, including the series 'Morfologies Psycologiques' and 'Inscapes', and describes the artist's understanding of space in his design work. She considers the link between landscape and domestic living explored in George Nelson's work in the 1950s, examines the design of public places, including offices, in the 1960s, making reference to the use of the term Office Landscape to describe this impulse, and observes how developments since the 1950s have anticipated the focus of the 1972 exhibition. She outlines Gordon Matta-Clark's study of the links between domestic living and the landscape in his work in the early 1970s, considers some of the work included in the 1972 exhibition, with reference to work by Ettore Sottsass, Joe Colombo, Alberto Rosselli, Marco Zanuso, Richard Sapper, Mario Bellini, Gae Aulenti, Gaetano Pesce, Ugo La Pietra, Archizoom, Superstudio, and Sturm, and concludes by commenting on the impact of the Internet on the understanding of space.
