Description

Accattone 2 draws on several themes from the first issue — material shifts, models and model-like buildings, the role of images in the design process —

to address specific methods and approaches which challenge established codes: bricolage, minor architecture, personal narratives and collections. Each contribution of Accattone 2 resonates with the others through analogies and faux amis, experimentations on editorial devices and shared positions towards reality, history and representation.

Accattone 2 showcases documents by Aurélien Froment, Koenraad Dedobbeleer, Baukunst, Manuel Montenegro, René Heyvaert, Jean Renaudie, Studio Tom Emerson at ETH, 6a architects, Good Times & Nocturnal News, Eric Lapierre, Brandlhuber+, Erica Overmeer, Martinez Barat Lafore.

Accattone is an independent magazine on architecture started in 2014. Self-published by two architects and two graphic designers, Accattone explores ‘minor’ practices in architecture through the specific means of the printed magazine. In the current landscape of non-commercial publications, its originality lies in the strong visual orientation and in the close association of methods, editorial devices and featured contents. Through these experiments, crossing the methods of artists-as-iconographers with the work of emerging practices, Accattone addresses critically a fundamental aspect of architectural thinking and practice: the working document and the changing status of the image in the design process.
