The Architecture Post The Review Fourth Edition: David Garcia, MAP

Today's edition of The Architecture Post The Review, David Garcia talks MAP with us. MAP is an atypical little publication of architecture, unclassifiable as format, more a poster than a magazine, as he said.
It was a very great pleasure to discussing MAP with David Garcia.

MAP, also known as Manual of Architectural Possibilities, is a publication of projects and visions that arise through collaboration with researchers and the sciences, into territories, which can be concrete or abstract, but always challenged.

MAP is not a magazine (it only has two pages) and it is not a book (it is issued twice a year).

MAP presents itself as a A1-folded poster where informative is immediate, dense and objective on one side, and architectural and subjective on the other. MAP is a guide to potential actions in the built environment, a topography of ideas or a folded encyclopedia of the possible.
