THE PLAN 149, the sixth issue of 2023
By Editorial Staff -

THE PLAN 149 is the sixth issue for 2023. The cover is dedicated to Casa Sabater, designed by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos and photographed by Fernando Guerra.

THE PLAN 149 opens with the editorial “The Tectonic Imagination,” written by the Höweler + Yoon studio. The authors investigate the divide between architectural design and construction, whereby architects work with representations and builders work on the physical building. The use of digital tools, such as BIM, and growing environmental awareness are introducing new dynamics to the sector, which this article aims to address.
