Fables & Constructions

Six Takes on Future Architecture

Lucie Kohoutová & Martina Freitagová

Fables & Constructions

Do words have the ability to define architecture in the same way they define us?
Do they possess some magical power that connects areas you wouldn’t imagine in one place?
Can the untranslatable be translated?

A concrete pontoon, a landfill, or a whole city made of plants: unusual as they may be, these are just a few of the narrators of this book. Inspired by filmmakers Beka & Lemoine, postmodern classics or comic books, authors of this experimental archi-fiction invite you to experience six innovative projects through the non-traditional, non-expert lens of its potential “end users” or parts. Fables and Constructions deliberately plays with multiple genres and perspectives to help diffuse creative architectural ideas beyond their professional field.

This audacious experiment with different forms of writing, is the winner of the first dpr-barcelona writing grant 2019 for Future Architecture.
