ALPHAVILLE’s 2nd Monograph was published in Italy
Our second collection of work Come Giardini ‘Alphaville Architects’ has recently been published by Libria from Italy.
This book is a picture album, which includes technical drawings and photos of twelve selected projects by Alphaville.
It focuses on the spatial aspect of our work, which is described by the editor as ‘gardens in metaphor’, referring to the poetic space that we created inside of an architectural volume.
This ‘garden influence’ comes from a number of revisitation and re-editing on the composition of traditional Japanese landscape architecture, including the Threshold-shakkei, Measure-Shukkei, skew-Sumikake and Body-Sharawadgi. Regardless of the thematic relevance, our research on the composition in these gardens has inspired our design of architecture.
