Dogma: 11 Projects
The Brussels-based architectural studio Dogma was founded in 2002. Led by Martino Tattara and Pier Vittorio Aureli it has focused almost exclusively on large-scale projects and citywide interventions. These projects venture beyond mere physical size to expand conceptual frameworks and radically rethink what it is to produce an architectural project, in the process challenging the very discipline itself. This book, and its accompanying exhibition at the AA School of Architecture, explores 11 works developed since 2002 that collectively present the Dogma ethos: to see the urban project as a comprehensive domain in which architectural form, the political and the city are reclaimed as one 'field'. Mobilising and reinvigorating both drawing and text - the quintessential tools of architecture - these 11 projects range from speculative and theoretical proposals to investigations that question today's modes of housing. Complementing the projects themselves are essays by Brett Steele and Gabriele Mastrigli.
