Overview

‘12 Projects in 120 Constraints’ reviews a set of Plan: b projects in Colombia through the environmental, social, and voluntary constraints the projects faced, and the interim agreements built around them. The book details a reconstruction of these buildings’ central facts through an “inverse” exercise — explaining each project based on contextual constraints rather than singular architectural ideas. As a prelude to the projects, the book examines other authors’ work and how they understand the limitations and difficulties that are part of their creative activity. This revision generates a broad reflective base to approach the architectural projects and the predominant role that restrictions have played in them.

Plan: b is an architecture practice based in Medellin, Colombia, founded in 2000. His work revolves around the design of buildings with different programs and scales, participation in academic activities, and the construction of concepts that allow connecting architecture with the urgent realities of everyday life. Plan: b understands the architectural project as a provisional pact, a permeable configuration, and a positive expression of the eco-social constraints surrounding us.
