This issue features the work of Chilean architect Smiljan Radić. It opens with Nenia Project, which reveals the visions of the past and future that drive his architectural approach. The project is a sort of memoir by Radić, a collection of metaphorical manifestos and artefacts that have equipped him with “subversive artistic strategies” and “scores for object-based works”. Ranging from sculptures to buildings, 25 key works are presented along with Radić’s own conceptual drawings and paintings. All were produced between 2010 and 2021. Adding depth to the collective sense of temporal progression of the works are two essays by Ryue Nishizawa and Fredi Fischli and Niels Olsen.
