Reclaim - Domestic Actions contains 54 actions that strip and boil down the home to its most basic roots. They have lightened the load, made up for previous mistakes and taken away the esthetic preconceptions that until now had put strain on these type of interventions.
a+t magazine inaugurates the WORKFORCE series, dedicated to the design of workspaces. WORKFORCE A Better Place to Work (a+t 43) is the first volume of the series and reflects, through 25 projects, the path leading from the wild waters of the google-offices towards the calmer waters of the quiet office where employees return to adulthood.
The latest issue of a+t magazine, Domestic Actions 2, rounds off the Reclaim series, which arose from an environmental sense of reclaiming land, objects, infrastructures and materials. This new volume, on refurbishing dwellings, analyzes actions carried out on both private dwellings and collective housing.
The number 37 of a+t magazine, entitled STRATEGY SPACE. Landscape Urbanism Strategies, is the second issue of the STRATEGY series. 12 works of urban landscaping, all built, are analyzed regarding the strategies identified in each one. The Strategy series initiates a new way of approaching the project, in which the method is as visible as the result.
In this issue in the Strategy series, a+t extends its field of research to the system of tactics. While the first two issues in the series involved approaching the project through the strategies identified in it, Strategy and Tactics in Public Space aims to define the strategy in relation to the tactics.

The In common series attempts: - To interpret urban space within landscape as an extended field, a field between architecture and landscape, a field on which architects and landscape designers agree. - To comprehend that public space is vulnerable, uncontrolled and diverse, and that its capacity for social integration stems precisely from these characteristics. - To admit that spontaneous appropriation of spaces by citizens is a legitimate form of urban design. - To confirm the capacity o…

This double issue from the Hybrids Series, titled HYBRIDS III. Residential Mixed-Use Buildings, is centred on residential use as a support for actions involving hybrids. Whereas issues I and II devote their pages, respectively, to high rise and horizontal hybrids, Hybrids III supports the inclusion of housing in mixed developments, that guarantees continuous functional intensity and tends to be the driving force of financing civic buildings.
A Better Place to Work 2 is the second volume of the WORKFORCE series, dedicated to the design of workspaces. The article “Redesigning the office building. Sources of inspiration” (by Javier Mozas) analyzes graphically the material and ethical dimension of projects, reclaiming references, highlighting elements or pinpointing qualities in that this might help to understand the sources of inspiration used by the architects. Moreover, A Better Place to Work 2 covers 20 projects of workspaces.
