Archipress M publishes a new book 'A living tradition - Works and projects by KPF Arkitekter'
Archipress M has chosen to focus exclusively on KPF Arkitekter and its projects that span the last decade. The overriding theme of the monograph rests on the possibilities of everyday architecture and spans different building typologies, ranging from housing and industrial buildings to institutions. The projects featured in the monograph are unpretentious, contextual, and have a deep-seated relation to the modernistic architectural tradition.
The monograph features essays by practicing architect, adjunct J.M. Cava, from the University of Oregon and Marylhurst University, as well as practicing architect and professor of architecture, Robert McCarter from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. He is the acknowledged writer of several books about e.g. Louis l. Kahn and Frank Lloyd Wright.
The book is distributed by ActarBirkhaüser and will be available world-wide in spring 2012.
Other Books in the Global Danish Architecture series:
GD6 is now available worldwide
The Global Danish Architecture book series was developed based on the need for publications that feature the best and most important contemporary architecture within the Danish architectural arena. The purpose of the book series is to enable practitioners, students and the public to explore the world of architecture by gazing into the works of different architectural studios.
Each book is characteristic of the time, as it features contemporary buildings and design trends by a variety of Danish architectural studios.The goal is simply to branch out internationally, by opening up the sphere of modern Danish architecture, worldwide.
