Smiljan Radic: Every So Often a Talking Dog Appears
and Other Essays (2G Essays)

This compilation of essays by the Chilean architect Smiljan Radic covers twenty years of written production. The texts were written for various reasons: on the occasion of the publication of a book, as lectures or to accompany an exhibition. They are an invaluable aid to reaching a better understanding of the work of this magnificent architect, but they can also be read independently as shrewd personal reflections on architecture and other disciplines. Radic’s texts are almost always assemblages of several pieces or paragraphs that, although written by an architect, do not attempt to refer to a particular project or work.
