In this instalment, the focus is on two of today’s progressive practices: Spain’s AMID.cero9 and New York-based MOS Architects. Featuring recent work from the past several years, plus critical essays by the architects and others, a revealing image and comparison of the two architect duos emerges. Seven projects by AMID.cero9 are explored in depth, including the Fuente Santa Spa, Pavilion for Sharjah Biennial 11, and the Clunia Archaeological Site Visitor Centre. A variety of more than twenty projects by MOS Architects also appears, among them private homes, pavilions, mixed-use buildings, and more, including an art historian’s library and Hawai’i Presidential Center.
