Publisher's description: Over the last 15 years AZC's architectural work has developed through a diverse range of experiences. This book,Time for Play, presents exhibition pavilions, temporary installations, and ideas competitions - a mix of built and un-built projects. "Today's situation promotes innovation, supports creativity and enriches projects, calling on our intelligence. We are forced to take a new look at practices and uses, to consider different ways of doing things, to think about the humanity of a place; and all this when we still find it so hard to understand community needs, and even more so to keep up with changing society." And this is the position taken by AZC architects. Faced with a changing world, they propose solutions that are novel in their shape, use, cost and temporality.
