Short stories on the post-contemporary…

On the occasion of 11th International Architecture Exhibition "Out  
There: Architecture Beyond Building" directed by Aaron Betsky,
La Biennale di Venezia, SUN architecture publishers and Pedro Gadanho  
invite you for the launch event of

Beyond. Short Stories on the post-contemporary…
In a moment in which visual culture is clearly dominant, architecture  
is calling for the return of writing and critical thought. But this  
return is confronted with the need to compete for attention as  
against the seduction of the image. In this context, SUN architecture  
and Pedro Gadanho are working on a book series in which every new  
thematic volume will be composed by a collection of specially  
commissioned essays and short stories by emergent architectural  
writers and thinkers in Europe. The series intends to stimulate both  
writers and readers towards the experimental possibilities, to the  
high efficiency and to the strong appeal of a concise, creative  
literary formats that explicitly addresses the pleasure of reading...
