We’ve all been there. Tight deadlines, frustrating clients, too much coffee and too many all-nighters. But we’re still here. We keep creating despite the struggles. For each one of us, this journey is unique, but at the same time, we share a common motivation - the urge to create.
ARCHIVE BOOKS asked its readers from around the world to submit poems on architecture that express this drive to create. This printed collection is a collage of the received texts, accompanied by empty interstitial pages for notes.
A notebook is a daily tool that both inspires and gives you the freedom to reflect. It is made of the Swedish Arctic Munken Paper. All Munken standard products are genuinely environmentally conscious and available as EU Ecolabel, FSC® FSC-C020637 and PEFC™ PEFC/05-33-99 certified.
