Architecture for Disquiet Bodies offers a comprehensive overview of more than twenty-five years of unique creations by artist-architect Didier Fiúza Faustino. The book is an opportunity to place Didier Fiúza Faustino’s work in the context of the most contemporary ideas, experiences and forms. The objective of this book-manifesto places the body at the center of all the concerns of an architect without scale.
The publication is divided into three main parts. The first is designed as a magazine with real fake advertisements created by Faustino’s Bureau des Mésarchitectures. The second focuses on the agency’s manifesto projects. The third part shows the realizations. Between these parts, the manifesto texts of the agency and of various invited authors will be inserted to analyze and put into perspective the work of Didier Fiúza Faustino and his team.
