Smiljan Radic: Bestiary
Smiljan Radic, Sou Fujimoto
The Chilean architect presents eighteen projects designed in his studio that illuminate ideas and process in this handsome publication. Some began life as illustrations of texts loved by the architect, and several have been realised, or are in that process. Besides photographs, drawings, and renderings, the book includes wooden models based on these projects. According to the preface by Radić, it is a collection of moments of conviction: constructions of the imaginary through what he perceives as good illustrations. Among the featured works are NAVE Performing Arts Hall, House for the Poem of the Right Angle, Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2014, Mestizo Restaurant, and more.
