The subtitle reads “Architecture and Belonging from the Body to the Cosmos.” This book zooms out across seven stages of citizenship, from the individual, to the collective, to the global, to the cosmic. Remember Powers of Ten? Man, that's a good one. Same idea here.

Citizenship means different things in the United States (and probably everywhere) than it did when the archaic documents we associate with the word were first written. We also have people alive and thinking and working now in ways that didn't exist then. Like designers and architects. This book is a collection of thoughts on contemporary ideas of citizenship, taking into account new notions of globalization, belonging and sense of place in the world today. It was made for the US Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2018.

Hernandez in collaboration with Shani Crowe; Design Earth; Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Laura Kurgan, and Robert Pietrusko, with Columbia Center for Spatial Research; Estudio Teddy Cruz + Fonna Forman; Keller Easterling; SCAPE; Studio Gang; exhibition curators Niall Atkinson, Ann Lui, Mimi Zeiger; and more.
