Idea Code 14754

This instalment introduces experiments by architects who began their activities since the outset of the 21st century. Through projects and interviews, a common theme emerges: the architects’ determination to actively commit to society, whether through projects or collaboration. Both the transformation of buildings and urban spaces and the formation of collectives have played integral roles in recent endeavours by young practices. Includes interviews with The Living (New York), Rotor (Brussels), Vo Trong Nghia (Vietnam), Van Bergen Kolpa (Rotterdam), m7red (Buenos Aires), Assemble (London), Superpool (Istanbul), Collectif Etc (Marseille), among others.
