© 2020 Writing Grant winner, The Wanderer by Monique Besten
The FINAL_FINAL Writing Grant by dpr-barcelona has consolidated as a way to find new voices and spotlight writing creativity and new narratives for architecture, which we believe can still be both inspiring and fabulous! The selected author for the second edition of our Writing's Grant is Monique Besten (the Netherlands) with her proposal The Wanderer: a traveler born out of words, that will move between the projects and ideas of six emergent creatives, slowly growing, changing and becoming. Moving from one to the other, this traveler will mirror them, absorb them. The wanderer will become a map. A map for the future.
The Wanderer will be published in October 2020.
