(All articles are published in Spanish)

PLOT 19, the June-July issue, is out on the streets! You can find it in bookstores and in our virtual store. This new issue includes a selection of small dwellings in “Domestic Scenes” and an analysis, in terms of space, of the film Blade Runner by the zine Interiors.

In the Practice section we published two museums by Herzog & De Meuron in detail. This issue also includes a series of works by the Indian studio RMA Architects along with an interview with its founder, Rahul Mehrotra. “Living in Buenos Aires” presents a dwelling phenomenon through the study of two buildings by young architects, Pacífico Oficina + Blaa Estudio and Esteban-Tannenbaum-Tannenbaum, while Eva Prats and Ricardo Flores introduce us to a classic: Walden 7.

 In the newest edition of OOT, Ciro Najle converses with Enrique Walker about project methodologies, constriction workshops and clichés. Finally, we present Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa’s research work within a report of the School of Architecture of The Cooper Union.

Interiors is an online zine where architect Mehruss Jon Ahí and filmmaker Armen Karaoghlanian analyze and diagram films in terms of space. Interiors focus in how space is used and how architecture impacts in the characters and narrative. For this number of PLOT we present the science fiction classic Blade Runner (1982), by Ridely Scott.
