About “DUELO/DUETO II — PEDRO GADANHO E PAOLO ROSSELLI: A TALK ON ARCHITECTURE IN PHOTOGRAPHY”

Pedro Gadanho - Paolo Rosselli - A Talk on Architecture in Photography: Photographs by Paolo Rosselli is the first of the four publications focused on each of the Dueto/Duelo sessions that fostered a critical debate related to Architecture, Art and Image between architects and photographers, which took place in 2016 in Casa das Artes of Porto, Portugal.  Even though this book has as base the talk between Pedro Gadanho and Paolo Rosselli it amounts to much more than the rich exchange of ideas between these two authors. In fact, this book foretells the significant and close collaboration between the authors, editors and designers, particularly the passionate work with Paolo Rosselli resulting in a judicious selection and juxtaposition of images and text, combined with thoughtful layout and design.

About “BUILDING VIEWS”

The minimalist window has known a remarkable success for nearly two decades, pursuing and extending the legacy of a major icon of Modern Architecture — the horizontal sliding window and the glass window/wall. Starting from the worldwide experience of Jofebar, a thirty-year-old company in the field of metalworking, structural glass and minimalist windows, this book proposes to build different views on the contemporary window, architecture and construction. Contributors — including architects, critics, photographers, writers, entrepreneurs and academics — offer a rich and unexpected set of insightful texts and beautiful images.
