Description

Nineteen Interventions: Arquitectura-G is the first monograph to celebrate the work of this award-winning, Barcelona-based studio, and rounds off their first decade of practice. Readers are quickly absorbed into a distinctive universe, as they transit through more than 100 full-bleed images, where spaces, angles, and textures merge and intersect, page after page. Ultimately, these interventions—renovations or extensions that rest upon the framework of existing buildings—paint a larger picture as well: of an economic crisis that devastated a profession but gave rise to the conditions that shaped the young architects’ singular style and method of working. Photographed by the studio’s long-time collaborator José Hevia, the book also features texts by Oscar Tusquets, Moisés Puente, and Sam Chermayeff, as well as individual architectural plans for each project.
