PLOT 21, the October-November 2014 issue, is out on the street! You can find it in bookstores and in our virtual store. In the first part of the magazine we reproduced the introduction of “The Petropolis of Tomorrow” by co-editor Neeraj Bhatia along with representative graphics of the exhaustive analysis of a new possible urbanism that could follow up the oil-bearing boom in high seas in Brasil. We also present a historic revision of the Higienópolis neighborhood in San Pablo and its importance as an example of architectural and urban experimentation linked to an innovative social agenda. Lastly, we show a variety of projects by Galpón Estudio. In the practice section there´s an emphasis put on emerging architecture in the United States. Cristina Goberna introduces six new practices –including her own- in New York (FKAA, Bittertang, Playlab, Formlessfinder, Work AC and SO-IL), we present Studio Gang from Chicago with an interview and three projects and finally we share two new projects by Richard Meier & Partners with an interview by Florencia Rodriguez. In this new edition of Out of Time, Ciro Najle talks to Michael Meredith in his home and studio in Harlem. In addition we publish an interview to Michael Hays by Florencia Rodriguez and the introduction of the book “The Air from other Planets” by Sean Lally.
