El Croquis 148 - Collective Experiments. Spanish Architects 2010
59,95 €

Do the workgroups featured in this publication share a national context?
Some of them (the two in Barcelona) are not headed by people who were
born in Spain nor have a Spanish nationality.
They have assistants who
have been trained at universities around the world. The architects who
head these studios are part of a minority much closer to academia and
the exceptional project than to the generic architectural market.
Almost all of them have devoted part pf their time to publications and
teaching. This issue contains works by Arquitecto VLC, Arquitectos
Paredes Pedrosa, Estudio IP, Estudio JDS, Arquitectos López Rivera, and
cero9 Amid. The introductory essay is by Andrés Jaque.
