The competition for Pamphlet Architecture 32 centred on the theme of resilience. By addressing the capacity to cope, the ability to bounce back, and the mitigation and management of risk, participants were asked to showcase a fresh understanding of the architectural opportunities found in resilience. James A Craig and Matt Ozga-Lawn’s winning entry successfully takes on the topic through an investigation of the ravaged city of Warsaw. By identifying, interrogating and ultimately reinforcing both the physical and immaterial conditions of the landscape, the project allows the space to become something new and yet hold on to what it is, truly exhibiting resilience.
Based in London and Edinburgh, James A Craig and Matt Ozga-Lawn founded the collaborative practice Status in 2007.
The AA Bookshop is located at 32 Bedford Square, London.
