Coming from the South
Paperback      ISBN: 8495273039
One gets the impression from most books about architecture and the city that the world is a flat place inhabited by very rich countries, plus others that are very poor and who are trying as fast as they can -via primitive capitalism - to stop being so. More complex physical and geographical realities exist, however, as well as places with middling economies. In this book Eduard Bru speaks of some of these places in the South of Europe, as well as on other continents. He does this through his own projects and writings, and those of different friends, organized according to a certain mise en scene: The book opens with a number of theoretical articles and schemes oriented towards thinking about the specific conditions of the project in those contexts.
