For almost thirty years, Didier Fiúza Faustino has been working on the relationship between body and space in a variety of artistic dimensions. From architecture to design, by way of installations, experiments, videos and artworks in public spaces, the artist-architect’s oeuvre includes over 270 projects on various scales. Some are architectural in nature, some are purely artistic. But they all are characterized by their critical perspective on architecture, often revealing the limits of bodies in normative, constricted spaces.
“Architecture for Disquiet Bodies” offers a comprehensive overview on the French-Portuguese conceptual architect. In essays, Faustino’s own texts and richly illustrated explorations of 30 selected projects, the book investigates unique creations that place the body at the center of an architect’s concern. It includes a full catalog of Didier Fiúza Faustino’s works.
