Our new book Scavengers and Other Creatures in Promised Lands is finally on Amazon . It is also available at the AA Bookshop .

Book Blurb:

Is the idea of environment in architecture only ever reducible to ‘environmental architecture’? Our answer is a resolute no. Instead we offer an alternative reading of ‘environment’, in which the brutal and lyrical are juxtaposed through visually compelling narratives of architecture. Illustrating our approach, this book presents ten years of student projects at the Architectural Association, all prompted by the unit’s visits to extreme geographic contexts – from the rainforests of Brazil to the quarries of northern India. With additional photographic documentation and conversations with Lebbeus Woods, Geoff Manaugh and Peter Cook, Scavengers & Other Creatures in Promised Lands explores the gripping power of myth and fiction as radical narratives for imagining the near future
of cities and forests.

London, 2017, 29x24cm, 152pp, illustrated, paperback.
