Architecture of the Magazine

Spring 2016

Fabio Gigone and I conducted a 21 day elective workshop for the students of the 3rd year at the Aarhus School of Architecture in Denmark.

The results were discussed as a round table with the protagonists from SOCKS.

4 Books

These were collected in 4 Books.
