Alberto Altés Arlandis, co-editor of "Intravention, Durations, Effects - Notes of Expansive Sites and Relational Architectures" presented the book at the Architecture Triennial in Lisbon.
Here is what Dana Cuff, UCLA Los Angeles; Doina Petrescu, University of Sheffield; Jon Goodbun, University of Westminster; and Ana Betancour, Chalmers Gothenburg write about the book:
"...The conceptual grounding for 'immediate interventions' is matched by an attention to formal qualities, social agendas, and political implications of design, evident in this richly illustrated book.... Intravention fundamentally reshapes our ideas about environmental experience."
Director, cityLAB / Professor, Architecture and Urban Design, School of the Arts and Architecture, UCLA
"... these architectural interventions remind us of the theoretical sophistication of the architectural machines of John Hejduk or Daniel Libeskind in the 1980s, to which they add new urban and civic functions... These indeterminate spatial entities, both objects and spaces, pieces of urban furniture and small architectures... invite us to slow down and take time to engage with things, spaces and people."
Professor of Architecture and Design Activism, University of Sheffield; atelier d'architecture autogéréé (aaa), Paris
"This book ... captures the energy and timeliness of this important new network of theorists, practitioners and researchers."
University of Westminster
"...This contribution to the notion of the role of architecture and urban planning in contemporary society ... is an extremely energizing injection of critical thinking and projective ideas straight into the heart of the stereotypic debate about architectural sustainable production today."
