Arquitectura Viva 168: Mass Is More

Publisher Avisa


Idea Code 14716

Mass is More: contrary to the paradigm of the light, portable, and obsolescent, the lessons of mass and thermal inertia suggest an alternative and no less sustainable aesthetic: that of the heavy, fixed, and lasting. An introductory article by Eduardo Prieto is followed by selected works by Baumschlager Eberle, Herzog & de Meuron, David Chipperfield, Gilles Perraudin, and Alejandro Aravena which illustrate how heavy can be efficient, and even beautiful.
