                      Christian Kerez - El Croquis
                      121,60 €

                      A special hardcover edition examines more than two decades of practice by Swiss architect Christian Kerez. Presented are 26 varied projects, including education, housing, and commercial and public functions. The Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, the Flemish Radio and Television Headquarters (VRT), the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Muttenz, and Werkbund Wiesenfeld Residential Estate are among the notable works. Essays, the architect’s own photographs, and two conversations (with Georg Franck and with Catherine Dumont D’Ayot, Anh-Linh Ngo, and Nikolai von Rosen) add critical depth to this analysis of one who sees his work as an “adventure”.

                      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.
