    BRUCE MAU: How about a look back over 30 years, to be able to see and act into the future?

    When I bought 30 years ago Incorporations (sixth book in the ZONE Books series), this was a thicket of a book, designed by the Canadian Bruce Mau (1959–). An anthology with the most important thinkers about the present and the future. Four years later, in 1995, Mau and star architect  Rem Koolhaas  published the book S, M, L, XL (Small, Medium, Large, Extra-Large) with critical essays, manifestos, travelogues, architecture and thoughts on contemporary cities. In addition to these two books, I later bought Massive Change (Faidon, 2002), of which Mau was editor – along with Jennifer Leonard and Institute Without Boundaries. The three advanced designed books made up a full 20 centimetres of the bookshelf!

    20 years later

    A few months ago, about 20 years later, the documentary about Bruce Mau came out: MAU – Design the Time of Your Life. Mau also published the book MC24 last year, where he draws the lines from Massive Change further – because as he says in the film, they had forgotten to describe the actions the book could inspire. In MC24, and at a number of conferences and exhibitions, he calls for «massive action» for the most important challenges of our time.

    Mau is one of the world’s . . .
