About

CARNETS - Architecture Is Just a Pretext

CARNETS - Architecture Is Just a Pretext will be a publication that resumes a large research about the state of the art of young Architecture practices in Europe.

Map of the 30 European architecture offices that have contributed to Carnets.

WHO WE ARE

Carnets is a research project started two years ago by eight architecture students from IUAV University of Venice. The aim is to investigate the current landscape of Architecture in Europe, after the 2008 economical crisis, through interviews, talks, round tables and workshops. The protagonists of this research are 30 young architecture offices from around Europe.

The main purpose of the research is to investigate and discuss the conditions that surround the architect's figure, practice and role in the context of the contemporary world: its relationship to society, history and media through personal experiences, in the belief that Architecture is just a pretext.


Carnets #05 20.12.17

Throughout the two years of the completed research, Carnets has mainly consisted of an editorial project in the form of two fanzines, which have been distributed for free within IUAV University of Venice in two consecutive academic years. The two fanzines were composed of 15 folded A4 each, and each A4 paper issue, published weekly, containing a written interview to one architecture office, with a drawing of the practice's workspace. Students collected them progressively in order to form their personal Carnets.

CARNETS #19 17.04.19

Besides the fanzine, the project was completed through the promotion of several events:

  • Round tables, titled "Coming of Age", during the opening week of Architecture Venice Biennale 2018. Three consecutive evenings of discussion with the offices that have participated in the first issue of the project.
  • 3 weeks long workshop in collaboration with fala atelier & Central ofaau within the frame of the international summer school W.a.Ve 2018 in Venice.

W.a.Ve. 2018 Italian Beauty - Postcards from Italian Beauty with fala&Central ofaau photo: Maxime Delvaux.

Furthermore, Carnets has been invited to take part in several events and round tables of discussion: Fey Arts Festival, po·mo·stroika – Postmodern Theories, Practices and Histories, New Generations - Atlas of emerging practices, CSU in motion within Unfolding Pavilion.

The book CARNETS - Architecture Is Just a Pretext will embody and narrate the main  project’s content, as well as some further extra content:

  • All the 30 interviews with the selected architecture offices.
  • All the 30 workspace images and drawings that each office has produced.
  • Images and texts from the two main events: Coming of Age round tables and Wa.Ve workshop.
  • A series of essays from external contributors, that expand and focus on some of the research's themes.

  • size format 17 x 24 cm
  • 272 pages
  • paperback with thread-sewn
  • Softcover

The book will be printed by Grafiche Veneziane, published and distributed from Anteferma Edizioni

CARNETS - Architecture Is Just a Pretext

CARNETS - Architecture Is Just a Pretext sarà un libro con l'obiettivo di riassumere una ricerca sull'attuale scenario di giovani studi di Architettura in Europa.

CHI SIAMO

Carnets è un progetto di ricerca iniziato nel 2017 da otto studenti di architettura all'interno dell'Università Iuav di Venezia. Il progetto ha come fine quello di esplorare lo scenario architettonico europeo, dopo la crisi economica del 2008, attraverso interviste, discussioni, tavole rotonde e workshops. I protagonisti di questa ricerca sono 30 giovani studi di architettura europei.

L'obiettivo principale della ricerca è esplorare e discutere le problematiche che riguardano la figura dell'architetto e la disciplina in relazione alle condizioni della contemporaneità, attraverso le esperienze personali di ciascun protagonista; nella convinzione che Architecture is just a pretext.

Durante il biennio di ricerca, Carnets è stato un progetto editoriale sotto forma di fanzine, che è stata distribuita gratuitamente all'interno dell'Università Iuav di Venezia per due anni accademici consecutivi. Per la durata di due edizioni la fanzine si è composta di 15 fogli pieghevoli in formato A4, ciascuno con un'intervista ad un singolo studio di architettura e un disegno del relativo spazio di lavoro. La pubblicazione a cadenza settimanale poteva essere collezionata da ogni studente, all'interno di un contenitore in modo tale da riempire un personale Carnets.

Oltre alla fanzine, il progetto di ricerca ha portato avanti in parallelo altri tipi di eventi:

  • Le round tables, intitolate "Coming of Age", durante la settimana di apertura della Biennale di Architettura di Venezia 2018. Tre serate consecutive di discussione con gli studi di architettura che hanno preso parte alla prima edizione della fanzine.
  • 3 settimane di workshop in collaborazione con fala atelier & Central ofaau all'interno della rassegna internazionale W.a.Ve. 2018 organizzata dall'Università Iuav di Venezia

Inoltre, Carnets è stato invitato a prendere parte a una serie di eventi e discussioni come: Fey Arts Festival, po·mo·stroika – Postmodern Theories, Practices and Histories, New Generations - Atlas of emerging practices, CSU in motion within Unfolding Pavilion.

CARNETS - Architecture Is Just a Pretext conterrà al suo interno:

  • Tutte le 30 interviste rilasciate dagli studi di architettura selezionati.
  • Tutte le 30 immagini/disegni prodotte dagli studi di architettura selezionati.
  • Immagini e testi dei principali eventi: la round tables "Coming of age" e il workshop Postcards from Italian Beauty. 
  • Una serie di saggi scritti che approfondiscono e ampliano alcuni della ricerca.

Con il fine di ottenere il miglior risultato possibile, abbiamo deciso di collaborare con lo studio M-L-XL, che si occuperà del graphic design del libro. Il libro sarà curato in modo tale da rendere la ricerca nel modo più efficace:

  • tiratura di circa 500 copie
  • dimensioni formato 17 x 24 cm
  • 272 pagine
  • rilegatura in brossura cucita filo refe
  • copertina morbida

Il libro sarà stampato da Grafiche Veneziane, e pubblicato e distribuito da Anteferma Edizioni.

Il libro sarà pubblicato a metà del mese di Dicembre 2019, in modo tale da trovarlo sotto l'Albero di Natale!

Risks and challenges

The demand and the dynamics belonging to the editorial market in the architectural spheres poses themselves the challenge to produce a thrilling product, able to encounter the main architectural discipline's questions.
The crowdfunding campaign has a goal set below the total budget required for the project production, figuring as part of a wider funding project. The project will be realised anyway, depending from several funding sources.
Hence, given the nature of the project, in the form of a book publication, the final result may differ from the images shown.
--------
La domanda e le dinamiche del mercato editoriale nel settore dell'architettura pongono la sfida di produrre un prodotto eccitante, capace di rispondere alle domande della disciplina architettonica principale.
La campagna di crowdfunding ha un obiettivo fissato al di sotto del budget totale necessario per la produzione del progetto, che rientra in un progetto di finanziamento più ampio. Il progetto verrà comunque realizzato, a seconda delle diverse fonti di finanziamento.
Di conseguenza, data la natura del progetto, il risultato finale può differire dalle immagini mostrate nella forma di pubblicazione di un libro.
