In this new entry on our blog, we have made an interesting selection of 3 books for interior design lovers full of curiosities and secrets to discover. These three books are quite a creative stimulus, with very interesting insights.
From different perspectives, all these narratives introduce us to worlds where, in some way, design is the protagonist. Let’s look at each of the three proposals below.
Big Architects: ‘Yes is more’ (Bjarke Ingels)
Bjarke Ingels is a 21st century architect, so his manifesto had to choose a different format: the comic book. Through its pages, the BIG study that he leads tells us about his modus operandi to propose the construction of a building. From the initial idea to its realization in the form of miniatures or paper. Undoubtedly, a very enjoyable and curious read to liven up some good reading times.
The Secret Life of Cities (Suketu Mehta)
This book was one of the most acclaimed novelties at the 2017 Book Fair. Written by Suketu Mehta, the book asks if there is a way of non-exclusion of the population of a city.
With this profound question, the author asks himself some social questions in this short essay. Among them, how with their migratory movements make the communities grow or diminish. Also, how affective links are organized and created between the population and the city. A book with much to tell, which aims to make us aware of many realities that go unnoticed.
Building Stories (Chris Ware)
It is one of the most awarded books of recent years in the United States. Its author, Chris Ware, brings together 14 books, booklets, magazines and others that narrate the life of a woman through stories and anecdotes of her life. In this way, it vindicates the paper format over the digital one. A very interesting book to make us think.
