RUBY PRESS at the Architecture Book Fair
From Oct 5th to 9th the first transnational virtual book fair takes place. Chiara Dorbolò curated a selection of books dedicated to architecture publishing and its intersection with politics, technology, economy and social issues. Ruby Press is represented with three titles, Design in Dialogue. 51N4E, Endeavour, Denkstatt edited by ETH Newrope, The Materials Book edited by Ilka Ruby and Andreas Ruby, and Addis Ababa. A Manifesto on African Progress edited by Dirk E. Hebel, Felix Heisel, Marta H. Wisniewska, Sophie Nash.
The Architecture Book Fair is a project by dpr-barcelona as part of the activities of the Future Architecture platform programme for 2021. It features publications from key international architecture and design publishing houses, new outcomes by FA members, and outstanding editorial initiatives by emergent creatives and FA alumni. The presented publications transcend the boundaries of conventional publications and explore the limits between printed matters and new media, transforming traditional publishing practice as we know it into a live exchange of knowledge.
The fair also counts with a programme of events, such as book launches, conferences, readings, and other joyful activities to reach out and to engage with the audience.
