Building with granite and off the grid – Casa Montaria, Portugal

Book - "Dyvik Kahlen In Practice, Villa Ruba" is out now. For the fourth book in the In Practice series, we explore the design process of Villa RuBa, located near Arnhem. Together with Fabrizio Ballabio, we develop the compositional research related to the historic typology of the villa and to the specificities of the sloping park in which it is located, and reveal how Virtual Reality is used to investigate the spatiality of the project before its realisation on the construction site. Additional contributions evoke the role of annotation as a design tool, the ambivalence of a classical and vernacular project, and the entanglement of contemporary architecture with pop culture. Texts by Fabrizio Ballabio, Benoît Burquel, Benoît Vandenbulcke, Christopher Dyvik, Max Kahlen, Emma Letizia Jones, Pieterjan Ginckels, Monika Pattern, Kong DJ, Thomas Weaver and Harold Fallon. You can buy the book from Copyright Bookshop, Borgerhoff and Lamberigts or Amazon
