AV Proyectos 074: Dossier BIG
Publisher: Arquitectura Viva Author: Luis Fernández-Galiano ISBN: 1697493X Format: Softcover, magazine 80pp, 340x300mm
Published six times per year, AV Proyectos provides a succinct survey of cutting-edge, contemporary architectural projects. Printed in full-colour on glossy paper and accompanied by technical drawings along with explanatory notes, the magazine additionally devotes pages to recent notable competitions and exhibitions while also providing a detailed look at one selected feature project per issue. The Dossier BIG issue includes BIG’s most recent proposals organised in accordance with the relationship between climate and architecture: from the warmest to the coolest context. The issue also covers the utopian proposals of the ‘Paper Architects’ Alexander Brodsky and Ilya Utkin, whose oneiric drawings suggest a critical analysis of the austere and rigid character of official Soviet architecture.
