Another Take PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Another Take free pdf agps architecture is a multidisciplinary design cooperative with studios in Los Angeles and Zurich. The firm was founded in 1982 by Marc Angelil and Sarah Graham in the United States and the Zurich studio followed in 1992. Bridging the domains of urban design, infrastructure, landscape, and architecture, the group approaches problem-solving as a collaborative enterprise, exploring relationships between design processes and products. From the development of urban strategies to the identification of construction techniques, the work is based on conceptual strategies translated into physical form. 'Another Take' is the first comprehensive monograph on agps architecture's work and ideas. It presents selected projects with photographs from the vantage point of users, showing projects in their daily context, but also with floor plans, sections and elevations. A series of essays, conceived as stories, unravel hidden aspects of the work: a sort of psychoanalytical uncovering of latent traits that are as much part of the buildings as their physical manifestation.
