Fernandez- Galiano, Luis. ed. The Architect is Present

Pap. Avisa/ Museo Ico 2014

Book ID: 98301

The exhibition The Architect is Present shows the work of five influential international studios who have turned austerity into their ethic and aesthetic motto. With offices located in five continents, these young architects work in underprivileged contexts, proving that scarcity of means can stimulate technical inventiveness and community participation, and become the basis for a responsible architecture where the vocation of service does not exclude beauty and emotion. From Norway and Germany to Burkina Faso, and from Paraguay to Australia passing through India or Thailand, these studios have built housing, rural schools or social centers with an extraordinary economy of means, admirable adaptation to collective needs and exemplary material execution.
