Description

Accattone 3 is a single content magazine specially produced for The Corner Show. Both an autonomous object and a continuation of Accattone 2

Accattone 3 consists in a 96 x 64 cm poster foldable into an 8-page publication. Martinez Barat Lafore collect 137 images and quotations inherent to their conceptual and built work, through sketch-up renderings, scanned drawings, professional photographs or mobile phone shots. The corner is a transversal theme to their practice: line, form, way of living, it becomes wedge, moulding and skirting board, inalienable furniture, partitioning wall. The architects embrace the everyday with the gaze sharpened by meaningful fragments of their experience — forms to be analysed, conceptualised and re-used as architectural operators.

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.
