In the magazine section of this edition of PLOT we publish an article on the second edition of the National Design Biennale of the UBA-FADU where the Portuguese architect and curator Pedro Gadanho gave a conference. We reviewed the monograph of Flores & Prats “Pensado a Mano” with the collaboration of Juan José Lahuerta. Moreover, we explored throughout four projects we selected, the architecture of the Greek office, Point Supreme Architects. Lastly, in this section we present our readers with a project by Hernán Gastelú, Casa en la Pampa, whose design was inspired by the idea of preserving the footprint of an original house.

In the practice section we publish an exclusive interview by Nicolas Dorva-Bory to the French studio Bruther, whose projects Cultural and Sport Center Saint-Blaise and Center of Investigation of New Generation we present in detail. To keep expanding our housing inventory of our Special Edition Nº 4 “Ways of Living”, we added three dwelling projects from Mexico, Argentina and Brasil in which the architects solve and lay out three different ways of living in big and dense cities. Finally, in or Italy article we expose the work of Cherubino Gambardella and the architecture office IaN+.

In the theory section, in a new edition of OOT, Ciro Najle converses with Colombian architect Giancarlo Mazzanti. On the other hand, we include an essay about Olivetti´s factory by Marco Zanuso in Buenos Aires written by Shantel Blakely. Lastly as part of our collection of articles of The Illustrated Guerrilla we publish “Voces desde el underground” by Pedro Ezequiel Videla and “Todas las formas del mundo” an exclusive interview to Éric Tabuchi by Javier Agustín Rojas.





II National Design Biennale UBA-FADU. From the 10th to the 15th of August in the Biennale there were exhibitions, installations and proposals relating to the production of the design careers in the University of Buenos Aires. There were more than 100 workshops and conferences linked to the different branches of design.

Con las manos en la masa. “Pensado a mano” is the first publication that documents as a monograph the work of the architecture office Flores & Prats. In the entirety of their projects one can see the passion for the processes, the details and the involvement in every single way. Juan José Lahuerta does this analysis.

Point Supreme architects. This office is founded by Konstantinos Pantazis and Marianna Rentzou in Athens, Greece, in 2008. We highlight four of their projects we consider the most important and that express their particular aesthetic: Nadja, Giorgia, Kalavrita Café and Serpantina Pavilion.

Hernán Gastelú. Casa en La Pampa. This house is located in the region of la Pampa in Argentina, a flat and fertile territory. The project is a restoration and expansion of an existing prefabricated house. The formal result originates from the generation of the archetype house.


Bruther. Founded by Stéphanie Bru and Alexandre Theriot in 2008. Simple geometries and a high technical specificity characterize their buildings. Nicolas Dorval-Bory was in charge of doing an interview in which they talked about the absence of dogmatisms, their interest for urban infrastructures, the ambiguities between programs and the realities of their use, the meaning of representation strategies and their search for a neutral architecture.

Ways of Living. We publish three housing projects located in some of the densest cities in the Latin-American territory. In Buenos Aires, in the neighborhood of Chacarita, the Charlone 960 building by Mauas.Steinberg + Beauchamp Asoc;  in San Pablo, Brazil, is located Villa Alpicuelta, a project by TACOA Arquitetos; and in Mexico D.F. Córdoba ReUrbano, a project by Cadaval & Solà-Morales.

Italy. Where History and Place are a Scene. Paolla Gallino and Federico Calabrese reported  Cherubino Gambardella, from the architecture studio gambardellarchitetti and IaN+, who form a group of Italian architects who can identify themselves essentially throughout the value of the drawing, the collage, the photomontage and the “traditional” methods of representation.
