The publication architexto is a series of books and exhibitions including a workshop where an architect and another profession (like a writer, a director, etc.) have to produce a book together.
It has caught my attention by their last publication on Damien Henry, architects, and Bouli Lanners, a director.
Bouli Lanners was the one who gave us ‘ultranova’. It is a hilarious film about a seller of turn-key houses. Lanners has started off as a Comedian at the Snuls, a Belgian comedy, so you can imagine, how this man is stage-managing the suburban no man’s land. This is not just a film for architects and urban planners but also for people who like the cities to become denser in a more cultural way.
