The Other Architect

To find another way of building architecture, we have to be willing to broaden our understanding of what architecture is and what architects can do. From a set of varied approaches drawn from many people, places, and times, the other architect emerges: searching for different operating models, aiming for collaborative strategies, introducing strange concepts, and experimenting with new kinds of tools. Reading and analyzing these traces reminds us that architecture has the potential to do more than resolve a given set of problems: it can establish what requires attention today.

Dear Juan

Luis Moreno Mansilla, Luis Rojo de Castro, and Emilio Tuñón write to Juan Navarro Baldeweg

The cooperative publication CIRCO or “Circus of Ideas,” was founded in Madrid in 1993 by architects Luis Moreno Mansilla, Luis Rojo de Castro, and Emilio Tuñón. Their small booklets opened a conversation among architects and students and extended the lives of academic interests and personal obsessions.

This facsimile of a letter to Juan Navarro Baldeweg dated 21 March 1994 was made in 2015 for our exhibition The Other Architect.
