Volume 14 – Unsolicited Architecture
Volume 14 – Unsolicited Architecture: In order to actively grapple with the challenges of our age, architects have to transform themselves from extremely competent executors of assignments into entrepreneurs and producers. Volume 14 discusses essential tools to reclaim professional autonomy.
In the first part, Volume sits ‘Around the table’ with forward-thinking practitioners who see a different role and responsibility for architects. The central part presents the portfolio of the Office for Unsolicited Architecture founded by Ole Bouman and students of MIT.
