Zaera-Polo Essay in Architectural Review Asia Pacific

Posted By: 

SoA alum Chris Knapp, Assistant Professor at Abedian School of Architecture, Bond University, consulted on the April-May 2014 issue of Architectural Reveiw Asia Pacific, themed authority.  AR134 features an essay by Alejandro Zaera-Polo and Maider Llaguno, titled "Climate-oriented design," as well as an interview with SoA alum Greg Lynn.

From the Australian Design Review:

"The focus was on digital technologies and the empowerment of the architect, with project reviews on UNStudio, Zaha Hadid, OMA, Preston Scott Cohen, and CRAB (the launch event’s School of Architecture building); with features from Alejandro Zaera-Polo and Maider Llaguno, Wes Jones, Dave Pigram and Iain (Max) Maxwell, and Roland Snooks; and interviews conducted by Knapp with Dennis Shelden, Achim Menges, Greg Lynn, Preston Scott Cohen and Australia’s Paul Minifie.

AR’s primary objective is to always promote the role of the architect, to instigate questions pertinent to the contemporary practitioner and academic, and also to inspire the student readership. AR is now expansive, incisively critical and always in search of the most innovative and expressive ideas whether they are borne in writing or manifesting as design. AR extrapolates ideas ‘from concept to completion’."
