C3 347: Minor Works / Civic Engagement / Virtuous Urban Pieces
This issue is divided across three themes: “Minor Works”, “Civic Engagement” and “Virtuous Urban Pieces”. In the first, Alison Killing looks at eight workspaces surrounded by other functions, exploring approaches to the issue of privacy and openness. Among them are Casa Rex offices, São Paulo, by FGMF Arquitectos and the Botín Foundation, Madrid, by MNV Arquitectos. The second deals with new needs and patterns of use in public space, featuring Market Hall, Ghent, The Shed, London, and Hamer Hall, Melbourne. Lastly, Simone Corda compares the urban attributes of NEO Bankside by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and Sliced Porosity Block by Steven Holl.
