    Full Description

    BUREAU, with offices in Geneva and Lisbon, is directed by architects Daniel Zamarbide and Carine Pimenta, and visual artist, designer, and art educator Galliane Zamarbide. The practice operates at the intersection of architecture, scenography, design, landscape design, and education. Founded in 2012, the firm focuses on building new and converting existing structures, interior design and furniture, exhibition design, inhabitable sculptures, and temporary pavilions. Their buildings and interventions feature spatial experiments, unusual shapes and perspectives, and play with the time factor as well. BUREAU thus navigates across the traditional boundaries of architecture, design, visual art, architectural teaching, and cultural education.

    Short Stories is the first survey of the firm’s work to date. Brief texts—some narrative, some descriptive and categorising—are contributed by architects and researchers Fabrizio Gallanti, André Tavares, and Marina Otero Verzier; curators and critics Julia Albani and Tirdad Zolghadr; designer and curator Alexandra Midal; and by Daniel Zamarbide. Some 360 images, as well as concise information on the depicted buildings and projects by BUREAU, round off this beautiful book.
