From the center to the fringes and back

Unknown Fields Division is a research group based at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London. They organise trips to the remote extraction sites and their local environment. A series is published by the BBC.

The AA also published for 3 years a weekly paper called Fulcrum, on a ryzograph, which gave it a nice but also precious feel. It’s a simple sheet printed on both sides. The project is now over, but all the issues are available as (non-searchable) pdf scan.

AGORA in Berlin

This is the initiative I talked lately about. It is one house working with different kind of space and economies: self-managed café, individual co-working spaces, collective co-working space, cheap or even lent space for start-ups in ecological or social domains on a 6 months turn and a studio for a collective residency, AFFECT.
