Arquitectura Viva

Regular price $85.00

LAN (Local Architecture Network), based in Paris, was founded in 2002 by Benoît Jallon (Grenoble, 1972) and Umberto Napolitano (Naples, 1975). Encompassing social and urban issues as well as debates on form and environmental and economic factors, LAN’s work seeks going beyond the vital cycle of users through the studied indetermination of the structures in their buildings, which are in this way able to adapt to possible changes of function throughout the years, and to the abstraction of their compositive language.

This line of research can be found in the twenty projects included in this issue of AV Monographs, almost all of them built in France, and a good part of them in Paris and its environs.
