Idea Code 15070

To go from system to fragment: this is the approach that Luis Fernández-Galiano proposes as the way to confront the contemporary crises of architecture: an ideological and economic crisis, but also a compositional crisis with implications on the actual discipline. The Art/Culture section looks at two British architects: Ralph Erskine, based in Sweden and Sir Denys Lasdun. Finally, the magazine’s technical dossier this time turns to bamboo, ‘green iron,’ a material highly sustainable and versatile, applicable to a range of innovations.
