Architectural Politics As Seen In Competitions
“Architectural Politics as Seen in Competitions” consists of 7 volumes. It is a collection of competitive architectural and city-planning proposals, dating from the 19th century to the present time. This is a truly ground-breaking collection of about 1800 illustrations from 52 important architectural competition submissions, which played a formative and pioneering role in the architectural field worldwide. Even the binding of this collection is unique. The volumes come with “patched covers” that are made by stitching together different materials, such as vinyl leather and cloth. The pages fold out on one side for each item, to add accent to the flow and give each piece of architecture a sense of depth. Measures were taken to replicate, as much as possible, the relationship between paper and ink as it must have been in earlier times. This is a collection that everyone will enjoy.
