Architecture is paradoxical; it always refuses to fit into the slot assigned to it. Made to serve, it always offers more than its simple use. Over the past twenty years, the architects Fabre & Speller have developed an innovative approach to architecture that flies in the face of contemporary exhibitionism. It is an architecture that follows in the wake of poetic rationalism and theoretical questioning instigated by Aldo Rossi, with whom they designed the art centre in Vassiviere. This book, associating the main buildings they have designed with their reflections on architecture, reveals a project approach based on typological imagination, discretion, the aesthetics of distancing and the importance of the poetic power of the setting.
