440 – Italian review 7

november-december 2014
The works selected for this issue confirm that the themes of infill, reuse, grafting and, more in general, the on-going confrontation with the existing, represent a way of working regarding which Italy has developed an original and constantly evolving approach. The projects selected in different geographic environments show the richness of subjects and areas of action


439 – Arcaeologies 2

september-october 2014
Influenced by the growing number of projects working with what exists, recent trends in architecture are manifesting a profound attention toward themes related to matter as the important product of history. Archaeology, comprised of layers, of excavations into the past, favours a kind of space where the principles of the void and the subtraction dominate.
The projects selected in this issue expand this field to include researches that propose the themes of the archaeological platform, of historic architecture, of grafts involving ancient and new fabrics, the reuse of military and industrial architecture.

Today, the values and enormous potential for growth of the city are at the heart of large-scale transformations in which architecture, for its formal exhibitionism plays a leading role.

435 – Collective Housing in Belgium

January-february 2014
The examples of residential architecture presented in this issue testify to an inversion in urban planning policies in Belgium.
