What do we call rural architecture? This new series questions what we recognise as the rural context in architecture, the limits of which are becoming increasingly diffuse today. The first instalment identifies projects consisting of a range of scales, each of which aims to facilitate those who inhabit the countryside, whether human or non-human. The publication features detailed profiles of works by Atelier Bow-Wow, MASS Design Group, Dierendonck Blancke, Fala Atelier, Stephen Taylor, Seiler Linhart, a25architteti, Gartnerfuglen Arkitekter & Mariana de Delás, and more.
