FORMS FOLLOWS EFFICIENCY: CEPA FOR CAAS. Marc Cassany. Actar, Barcelona, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Actar D/Actar Distribution Inc., New York. 120 pp. 16 x 16 cm. ISBN 9781940291864 In English.
Due date: December 2016. Publisher's description: The Professional Training Center for the Automotive Sector (CFPA), designed by the firm CAAS and located in Martorell, is the subject of this monograph because it is a clear example of a new attitude in architecture, which pursues efficiency at all levels. That being said, it has not been sought out from a position of neutrality or formal determinism. On the contrary. The building shows how the functionalist maxim "form follows function" has become obsolete and now, in contrast, architectural form responds to energetic, economic and building efficiencies, without sacrificing its own formal expressivity and singularity. As such, the in-depth analysis of the CFPA presented in this book, accompanied by several critical essays, offers a clear example of a new maxim for architecture: form follows efficiency.
