Right before New Year we launched Volume's 42nd issue, 'Art and Science of Real Estate'. In the coming weeks we're going to publish a selection of articles, and for those who are interested how the issue looks and feels we have uploaded a preview.

In today’s rapidly changing world, the role of real estate has been affected deeply.

This issue of Volume is dedicated to CURE’s ambition to create a continuum between architecture and real estate, as part of the design disciplines.
