THE SNIPER’S LOG. Architectural Chronicles of Generation X

 

An insight into the theoretical discourse that shapes and expands the architect’s practice.

This compilation of texts written since 1986 reveals a parallel activity to Alejandro Zaera-Polo’s professional life. The book is like a sniper’s log, a register of events for the purpose of accumulating experience for future missions, be it academic or professional, trying to identify tendencies and to assess performances, rather than to establish truth.

Alejandro Zaera-Polo is an architect and founder of London and Barcelona based AZPA. His work has consistent! merged the practice of architecture with theoretical practice, providing a strong intellectual rigor to the practice and the discourse on architecture. He trained at the Escuela Tecnica Superior de Arquitectur de Madrid, graduating with Honors, and holds a MARCH II from the Graduate School of Design, Harvard University, with Distinction. He worked at OMA in Rotterdam between 1991 and 1993, prior to establishing Foreign Office Architects, which run until its dissolution in 2011. He now runs AZPA, which integrates architecture, urban design and landscape architecture, working both for the public and private sector on an international scale. He is currently Dean of Princeton SOA and the Norman Foster professor at Yale SOA. He was Dean of the Berlage Institute in Rotterdam from 2000-2005 and held the Delft University Berlage Chair. He has also been Visiting Critic at Columbia GSAPP, Princeton SOA, UCLA School of Architecture and Yokohama University and he led a Diploma Unit at the Architectural Association in London. In addition to his professional role as an architect and an educator, Alejandro Zaera-Polo is a theorist and a thinker with a capacity to identify soda economical, technological and political trends and trans-late them into the architectural discourse. His texts can be found in many professional publications such as El Croquis, Quaderns, Log, A+U, Arch+, Harvard Design Magazine, Archis, and Volume, among many others
