In this book, Matthieu Wellner and Buero Kofink Schels (architects Simon Jüttner and Sebastian Kofink) unfold the design process of T.I.A. House 1 +2, a project they designed and built in Almeria, Spain. Through the close observation of a set of unpublished key documents including sketches, scale models, plans, screenshots and pictures, they explore the critical value of real-time improvisation in architecture. Three additional contributions shed lateral light on the level of practice-based research, image theory and reuse paradigm.
The book results from the collaboration between KU Leuven, ULB and U Liège within Architecture In Practice, a multi-university research group exploring the multiple ways in which architecture practice can be engaged in academic research and reciprocally. The book has been double blind peer reviewed.
