Press, 24.04.2015

Ton Verstegen wrote a review for Archined (in Dutch) on the recently published book ’50 imaginary buildings’ (50 fictieve gebouwen). Click here to go to the review on Archined.

Writer and architect Christophe Van Gerrewey asked fifty authors (architects and historians) to choose a “piece of architecture” from an existing literary text and describe it in 450 words. These descriptions were sent to fifty architects and artists, asking them to represent them: in a drawing, plan, sketch, photograph, or anything else, provided only that this image could be printed on paper. ORG drew the library of Umberto Eco as presented above.
