An Excursion Through Portraits and Landscapes with Elena Manferdini

Please join SCI-Arc Channel and Elena Manferdini [Principal, Atelier Manferdini / SCI-Arc Graduate Programs Chair] on an excursion through her latest book Elena Manferdini: Portraits and Landscapes The book collects the work created by Atelier Manferdini during the last six years of design activity. The projects are subdivided in two large families of explorations, Landscapes and Portraits. The titles of the two volumes allude to two distinct picture plane orientations: horizontal and vertical. These two orientations not only represent an act of vision by the author, they also orient the audience. This book is a collection of work that creatively reinvents our way of looking and being in the world. Elena Manferdini: Portraits and Landscapes was published by Beijing University of Technology.
