Daniel Carrapa, architect and blogger from A Barriga de un Arquitecto, a portuguese architecture blog, has recently published a post about a+t magazine's latest issue.
As Carrapa says, the publication "is an unusual approach considering other forms of conventional theoretical research. The finished project is often the critical starting point in the search for meaning. Here we are confronted with an alternate investigation method: an attempt to scrutinize the strategies that precede the design process...
... The careful selection and diversity of examples is ultimately what makes STRATEGY PUBLIC such an outstanding learning tool and a unique design resource manual, a book that every urban designer and landscape architect should definitely take into consideration".
A Barriga de um Arquitecto is mainly focused on contemporary architecture and urban design, covering recent works from Portuguese architects as well as projects of international significance.
