Imagining — Reporting — Guiding

We live in a society where carelessness has become a distinctive feature of how architecture is practiced and experienced. However, many people fight in their everyday life to promote a built environment that supports care.

For its first year, the Architecture Book Fair is curated by Chiara Dorbolò, an architect and researcher working between storytelling, criticism and design, and Future Architecture fellow 2021.
