CARME PINOS: ARCHITECTURES. Ed. by Daniela Colafranceschi. Artifice Books on Architecture, London, 2016. 264 pp. with 375 ills. (217 col.). 29 x 24 cm. ISBN 9781908967800 In English.
Publisher's description: Not only a complete monograph of Carme Pinos' architectural oeuvre, Carme Pinos: Architects traces the development of her practice over several decades via an in-depth investigation of the recurring themes and concerns that inform her work. Through studies of significant city projects and selected works, critical contributions from Peter Smithson, Daniela Colafranceschi, Rafael Moneo, Pedro Azura, Rafael Argullol, Francis Rambert, Juan Jose Lahuerta, Josep Quetglas, Magdelena Jaume and from Carme Pinos herself, come together to elucidate the motivations of one of the most compelling figures currently working in the contemporary architectural landscape. This publication journeys from Pinos early collaborations with Enric Miralles, characterised by an exploration of natural materials and forms that merge with their setting, to the evolution of her own emphatic works -- a striking articulation of complex shapes and spaces that maintain a clear commitment to the quality of construction while perfectly integrating with the environment, whether natural or urban. Carme Pinos: Architects is a comprehensive overview of the atypical architectural expression of Carme Pinos' truly unique and intriguing practice.
