Rough Work. Illustrated Architecture by Smiljan Radic
In the last years, Smiljan Radic has become in one of the most renowned architects in the world, mainly due to his work’s eccentricity, his “significative contribution to architecture as an art” as recognized by the Arnold W. Brunner of the American Institute of Architects in 2018.
Rough Work, written mainly by Radic himself, is an esencial compilation of his work. Smiljan shares his thoughts, inspirations, heroes, and a selection of 24 key works that allows us to understand the architect’s trajectory.
"In it, you will find a stolen title and other tales, together with my writing, frustrated projects, drawings and scribbles, academic excercises, happy buildings in use, others that are gone now, and many engineering plans. It is all part of what I have been able to build through 2015—a past that today takes a natural and expectant position in my present work, as if it were REMEMBERING A FORGETTING."—Smiljan Radic.
