Point Nemo’s name is derived from the so called „pole of inaccessibility. Located at the coordinates of 48°52.6′S 123°23.6′W and about 2,688 kilometers from the nearest coasts, the closest human beings are the astronauts passing over aboard the ISS. One might think that Point Nemo is a pretty lonely place at the world’s end… The opposite is the case, because down here, in the depths of the unknown, new lands are growing steady and persistently. On Point Nemo, space ships and satellites return home, shaping humankind’s narratives of the future.
A short history
Point Nemo Publishing was founded in March of 2020. Its core product is the magazine ADATO, which discusses architecture in conjunction with neighboring fields: technology, theatre, film and the fine arts, always with an eye on the socio-political context of our times. In this way, ADATO very much reflects its publishing house’s values and motivations!
