IN Practice

IN Practice: The state of committed architecture in Europe

IN practice is a study of committed architecture in Europe which looks beyond the work of the elite set of Archistars. The study is the product of the joint work of AIAC, the Italian Architecture and Criticism Association, and A10 new European architecture Cooperative, promoted and supported by Gnosis Architettura. It was presented for the first time at Palazzo Widmann (Venice, IT) during the 15th International Architecture Exhibition, Reporting from the Front in 2016.

Thirty-seven architectural practices from as many different countries in Europe are involved in the project. Their work, represented in the images, reflections, and critical texts appearing in the volume IN practice, is an interesting mirror of the state of committed architecture in Europe. After Venice, the study became a travelling exhibition, which started in Naples in Febrary 2017 at the Baroque church of Santa Maria del Rosario in Portamedina.
