Architectural Practice III

Cover of Architectural Practice III by Miguel Guitart.

The 3rd volume in the series curated by architecture faculty member Miguel Guitart and partner Daniel Gimeno. this collection of texts illumnates practicioners visions, teaching methods and ways of designing, and transports the reader to an intimate place which has inspired the works of some of the most outstanding architects of our time.

"Four years ago, when we began this adventure which essentially came about due to our inquisitiveness towards knowing how other architectural studios approached a blank page, we didn’t spend much time thinking about where we might end up. Now, with the publishing of this third volume of Práctica Arquitectónica / Architectural Practice, we have accumulated twenty texts and twenty visions, twenty teaching methods and twenty ways of designing. The number twenty has solidified into a theoretical reference point of increasing value to students and architects.

Three books with a total of almost six hundred pages which whisper to the readers,transporting them to an intimate place which has inspired the works of some of the most outstanding architects of our time. The series of texts has now acquired a certain elegance, a discrete coming of age which shall be reinforced in the future instalments that are already underway, becoming a watchtower for potential works of architecture, in deep continuity with the best architectural culture."
