Archifutures publishing platform

Archifutures is the publishing project that accompanies the activities of the Future Architecture platform, a multi volume field guide to the future of architecture. It merges the possibilities of critical editorial, innovative printing, and active user intervention. The collection maps contemporary architectural practice and urban planning, presented through the words and ideas of some of its key players and change-makers.

Archifutures constitutes an open repository of selected edited contributions, theoretical and practical contents taken from Future Architecture platform member’s activities and proposals from emerging creatives. This platform will function both as a bookshelf and as an analytical tool for the activities carried out by Future Architecture platform and its members, and its impact in the construction of contemporary architectural discourse. The operative dimension of this project constitutes a step beyond in the conceptualisation of publishing practice for digital scenarios where outcomes are not a closed result, but a means of communication between institutions, the publishers and their audience, thus allowing feedback and reconceptualisation.

The project includes on-line access to the contents, downloads of single articles in PDF format, name your price to get the complete books in PDF format, and printed books in selected bookshops, produced with Print-on-Demand technology.

In an second step, Archifutures will allow the reader to arrange personal compilations that are accessible, shared and downloadable in digital format, or to print on demand as a single volume. The reader will have an active role in publishing outcomes.
