NEW ISSUE OF QUADERNS REFLECTS ON THE ARCHITECT’S ROLE IN HABITAT BUILDING AND ARCHITECTURAL THINKING
The latest issue of the COAC journal, Quaderns d’Arquitectura i Urbanisme, “L’ofici de pensar” (The craft of thinking) is available for COAC members.
Under the direction of architects Joseph Ferrando and Marta Poch, issue 273 aims to reflect on the role of architects in building habitat and architectural thinking as they go through the project process.
Using a scientific approach and organised around five methods, the publication analyses the processes of a total of 25 architecture firms in the pre-crisis and post-crisis stages in order to identify their creative map and how they approach architecture in the current context. The following architecture firms are included in the journal: 300.000km/s, Aixopluc, Arquitectura–G, Arquitecturia, Barozzi Veiga, Anna & Eugeni Bach, Bosch Capdeferro, Carles Enrich Studio, DATAAE, Albert Faus, Flexo, Goig, Grau Casais, HARQUITECTES, López Rivera, MAIO, Mendoza Partida, Mirla, Lluís Ortega, PERIS+TORAL, Núria Salvadó, Unparelld’arquitectes, Jorge Vidal, Ferran Vizoso, Vora.
In order to provide a more cross-cutting view of the Catalan architectural scene, the volume also includes contributions from 5 global critics from academia and 5 local critics, who will offer a synopsis of what 5 different generations of Catalans brought to architectural thought. The contributors include names like Philip Ursprung, Beth Galí and Arturo Franco, among others.
