Architectural theory already delved into how form, typology, aesthetics or style defined spatial production through history. But how does law, instructions, codes or exception actively construct contemporary space? Can we find projects defined by political decisions, instructions of use or statements of conditions instead of a complete design? Are we able to find architectural procedures that reject tabula rasa to assemble existing elements and systems? Can we build a taxonomy of forms of action that work only with what already exists?
Bartlebooth is an independent publishing platform that examines the forms of production of contemporary space. Its experiments purpose to unveil which are the frameworks, conditions and dispositions, as well as the operations, protocols and procedures that construct today’s spatial practices. For this purpose, every issue is understood as a space of friction of multiple voices -from peripheral positions- that interrogate an articulating hypotesis.
