"Four years ago, when we began this adventure which essentially came about due to our inquisitiveness towards knowing how other architectural studios approached a blank page, we didn’t spend much time thinking about where we might end up...Three books with a total of almost six hundred pages which whisper to the readers, transporting them to an intimate place which has inspired the works of some of the most outstanding architects of our time. The series of texts has now acquired a certain elegance, a discrete coming of age which shall be reinforced in the future instalments that are already underway, becoming a watchtower for potential works of architecture, in deep continuity with the best architectural culture."
