AV Proyectos 083: Dossier Souto de Moura
Publisher: Arquitectura Viva ISBN: 1697493X Format: Softcover, magazine 80pp, 240x300mm
AV Proyectos 83 devotes its dossier to Eduardo Souto de Moura, whose most recent projects how his architecture defers to context and its capacity to adapt to a wide range of scales, from large infrastructures to subtle interventions in small existing structures. Next, the competition to renovate the mythical Tour Montparnasse in Paris, where the French team Nouvelle AOM has won over finalists like Studio Gang, OMA, Architecture, PLP Architecture, Dominique Perrault, and MAD Architects. The detail section is devoted to stone, a veteran - but not obsolete - and highly versatile material, with increasing possibilities thanks to parametrization and digital cutting.
