Atlas de Teoría(s) de la Arquitectura

Atlas of Theory(s) of Architecture is a visual sample of different ways of seeing the art of building.

The city protagonist of the territory TIC | Marc Chalamanch

Entered the 21st century there has vanished the city of the technologies of the information that were prophesying, a few decades ago, the futurólogos disguised as gurus.
