FAN Club

Architects talking about other architects.
A conversation for the online magazine Kvadrat Interwoven. Stories and commentaries from contemporary culture.

“A new series, Fan Club, focuses on how noted architects respond to the work of their colleagues: the buildings they have recently visited; the architects they admire; and the projects that may be influencing their own design. The idea is to explore how contemporary architects understand and interpret the work of others, and how this can nourish their own practice.”
