Full Description

Labics, based in Rome, is a leader among Italy’s up-and-coming architecture firms and has gained great international acclaim for submissions to competitions and a number of realised projects. This first-ever monograph on Labic’s fast growing, impressive body of work features some twenty of their designs, representing the entire range of the firm’s achievements. The selection comprises housing and office buildings, museums and cultural centres, schools, public spaces, and subway stations, located in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Finland, Iran, Italy, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, and the UK. All are documented with atmospheric photographs and a wealth of plans and diagrams to illustrate the concept and many details of each project.

Structure, in a variety of notions of the term, is guiding Labic’s approach. Consequently, the book is arranged in five chapters exploring geometric, bearing, circulation, public space, and urban and territorial structures in topical essays. This provides the frame for the featured projects, all of which exemplify the importance of the respective type of structure for Labic’s work.
