We joined research programmes with many fellows and invited contributors at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal and at the Bibliothèque Kandinsky of the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
We travelled to Tokyo, Kyoto and Yoshino and visited Teshima, Naoshima and Inujima islands to meet with architects, artists, historians and institutions. We presented the magazine and prospected for future projects. A grant from the Wallonia-Brussels Federation helped us to cover the expenses.

The second edition of A PRINT, curated by Studio Nock, will take place at ArkDes, The Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design in Stockholm.“A PRINT is a collection, an open archive and an exhibition of independent architecture publications and zines. The ambition is to promote and showcase alternative publications for innovative commentary and criticism on architecture. These publications are an important contribution to the architectural discourse, allowing for independent, mainly non-profit, editors to cover a broader range of topics than what is custom in conventional architectural magazines.”

Corporate Arcadia. Accattone was invited to curate the first exhibition of the new Contemporary Architecture Department at the CIVA Foundation, Brussels.
Corporate Arcadia looks at what is usually disregarded by architecture culture: the corporate architecture of banking headquarters, office buildings and hotels that has mostly shaped the city of Brussels in the 1990s and early 2000s.It does so with a twist:1/ Armin Linke’s photographic work from inside the Corporate Arcadia reveals the hidden activities of fifteen institutions and at the same time ‘restores beauty to these invisible sites’, overlapping architecture, interior design and social functions.2/ Magazine excerpts and videos offer thematic insights and counterpoints in the form of seven ‘double figures’, letting emerge multiple dimensions and critical knots.3/ Models and documents retrieved on site or from the architects’ archives are called to perform as embodied figures on a stepped theatre of objects: if their position is static, the concepts they carry are mobile, open to interpretation and recombination.(press kit / photos Silvia Cappellari)
