“I view achitecture as man himself. After all, achitecture is constructed by man. Architecture is a monument to the passion and effort of those who create it. The growth of architecture is derived from the life of its occupants. Considering architecture solely as a machine is cold. As occupants go about their daily lives, their emotions and experiences are stored within the architecture, providing it with warmth and a chance to breathe. As Le Corbusier said, achitecture is a “machine for living.” Man expects to be protected by architecture, whether it be in order to think, to cry, to dance or to sing freely.”

-Excerpt Tamami Iinuma House of Architecture

Published by Post/limArt and designed by Yoshihisa Tanaka, Tamani Iinuma’s House of Architecture presents a photographic approach to the architectural creations by celebrated modernists Le Corbusier and Kunio Mayekawa. Within, Iinuma’s photographs present a visual abstraction of form and subject, where both man as architect and building as structure stand side by side as an interdependent unit in continuous dialogue with its built environ. House of Architecture is an elegant and considered presentation of Iinuma’s imagery, allowing both image and subject further space for engagement within the structural form of the photobook.

The publication includes texts by Thibaut de Ruyter, Yuzuru Tominaga, Tadamoto Oshima and Tamami Iinuma.

All text available in Japanese and English.

Les Editions Fourre-Tout ont remporté, en association avec le collectif AJAP14 et OBRAS, la réalisation du catalogue du Pavillon Français de la 15e Biennale d’Architecture de Venise 2016.

Il s’agit d’abord et avant tout de la formalisation éditoriale d’un propos plus large que le projet scénographique – à savoir, un état des lieux de la France péri-urbaine, et de la transformation de son quotidien. Cet état des lieux se manifeste surtout par une campagne de recension de projets d’architecture auprès d’acteurs locaux, et notamment des Ecoles nationales d’Architecture, qui permettent au livre d’approcher de cette masse critique: au total, près de 150 projets sont documentés dans le livre, qui déploie par ailleurs un discours crtique lié aux thématiques générales de l’exposition.

Landscape in Modern Architecture

The color palette-like geometric patterns in the images of the “Landscape in Modern Architecture” series were shot in the Dessau Master’s Houses, where Bauhaus masters such as Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee lived, and the Bauhaus Building, where the same masters taught courses on color theory in the early 20th Century. In this series Iinuma takes “corners of a room” as the smallest compositional unit of an urban landscape and combines snapshots with images of corners of rooms, which she shot at Bauhaus. To produce her first artist book “schwarzschild” in 2012, she confronted the approximately 100,000 photographs she had shot in the past eight years and hypothesized that the collection of room corners constitutes a building, and the street running between buildings constitute urban space, the stage of everyday events. She explains that she was concious of Japanese poetry when she selected the images based on the concept explained above. In Hyakuninisshu (100 Poems by 100 Poets), poem that share keywords such as “mountain”, “river”, or “cherry” are juxtaposed to create a grid 10 cards wide and 10 cards high. “Landscape in Modern Architecture”, which takes framed world as “keywords” and connects them to produce an expansive space in nothing less than an attempt to redefine landscape photography.

E-C-O-C-O-R-E is a bi-annual ecology xine.

ECOCORE aims to explore the camouflaged souls of ecology.

ECOCORE addresses the improper valuation given by hyper consumption to shared, finite, natural resources. Negative externalities born by public and subsidised lives are calling for a re-examination of the “good cause”.

ECOCORE recognises that ecology’s identity has been repressed or relegated to area’s where it ought not to be. Relying on prettiness as a tool to convey its’ ideas, ECOCORE strives to furtively edit ecology’s muddled identity and environmental awareness.

There are many new leading actors, decision makers, and partnerships that play increasingly important roles in what happens to the natural world. The proliferating complexity, immediacy, and ubiquity of environmental crises therefore demand novel and unusual human responses towards this new eco-governance.

ECOCORE is made by Alessandro Bava

Bramante is the most important architect in the history of Western architecture.
This fact alone would be a sufficient reason for this issue, but the additional fact that Bramante died 500 years ago merits its own celebration.

Most of all, now that globalization has come full circle and we live in an entirely unified market, we must address Bramante’s work as the foundation of universalism in Western architecture.

Follow Me is a book created for the exhibition by Susan Philipsz in the city of Genoa. Designed on the basis of a contemporary Baedeker, this book offers an original itinerary in the city, read through the work of the Scottish artist, invited by the Museum of Villa Croce in conceiving an exhibition inside the historic center of the city. The book is thus a city-guide that links different places and times, and that also moves from the habit of moving, investigated as a typical phenomenon of the Grand Tour – and that is the origin of the term “tourism”.

Susan Philipsz (Glasgow, 1965) won the prestigious Turner Prize in 2010 and has presented her installations in 2007 at Skulptur Projekte, Muenster, in 2012 at documenta13, Kassel and in 2015 at the Istanbul Biennial. Susan Philipsz has gained widespread recognition in the international artworld for the sharp execution of her works, unique in their genre, based on the rigorous analysis of the history, memory, and traditions of a specific place that she transposes into immaterial architectures creating an introspective environment for the “viewer”. The universal narrative of loss, hope, and homecoming is conveyed through the reproduction of tunes and melodies that, blending with the genius loci, generate a subjective storytelling.

Infinite Possibility 1974 – 2014
Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian

Published on the occasion of the first museum survey of mirror works and drawings by Iranian artist Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian (Qazvin, 1924), this book offers a critical and art historical view on a singular body of work produced over a career of more than 40 years.

Essays by curator Suzanne Cotter, cultural historian Shiva Balaghi, and art historian and critic Media Farzin examine Monir’s oeuvre and its development from the 1970s to the present in relation to the decorative and architectural traditions of Islamic art and the cosmopolitan contemporary art world of which she has always been a part. A detailed timeline situates the artist’s personal and artistic trajectory within the broader context of contemporaneous historical, social and cultural events worldwide.
