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.
