Issue 1 – Flores & Prats
Edited by C2C, Spain
First edition 2021
Archives-Universum is a line of publications by C2C, arising after years of visiting different architects’ studios and noticing how life intermingles with work. Universum represents the awareness of how intense and interesting their work becomes, and the need to explain it in detail, to share it.
Universum seeks to document a specific moment, providing a portrait of work-life spaces and adding an explanation of the projects that are underway at that moment in the studio, believing that they will be significant to its future. The narration of each Universum is two fold: a photographic one in which the images are shown, joined or cut, to offer unitary or multiple visions; and another written one that gathers texts that can explain that process of work and life to which other authors join in where necessary arguments are produced, or some projects are explained.
This first issue is dedicated to the architects Flores & Prats, with photography by Juan Rodríguez, texts by Carlos Quintáns, and graphic design by Hans Gremmen.
