When we offered NArchitekTURA to edit the holiday issue of A&B, we knew one thing: it would be a visual feast. The beautiful photographs of the arresting architecture of today's most interesting designers tell intimate stories and show a world where architecture intersects with art. We often ask ourselves about the artistic dimension of architecture, how much art is in architecture itself and what it actually means. Because not every well-designed building acts on the viewer and user in such a way that he or she has a sense of interacting with something more than just a material trace of a particular designer's ideas.
This issue is also a journey that the Reader, following in the footsteps of NArchitekTURA, has the opportunity to take - stopping there for a moment and looking with admiration, perhaps once again, at particular buildings, spaces or places. We invite you to join us on this adventure.
In addition, we have prepared the e-publication of the current issue in an expanded version - we are giving our readers 250 pages of photographic essay and story about architecture prepared by the Cracow studio NArchitekTURA.
