The Future of Architectural Publishing
may 25, 2020
We started Trentini Talk Show in the first weeks of COVID 19 lock-down. We were confused, scared, and a little bit lost.
One of the reasons to do this show was to keep ourselves focused on our professional lives; therefore, we were to ask critical questions about architecture, design, and the future.
We are thankful to all the designers and architects who joined us every Thursday from different cities such as Riga, Oslo, Amsterdam, Berlin, Offenbach on Main, Moscow, and Milan. We have been discussing different topics from culture and consumption to architecture as a medium, and we hope that our audience enjoyed our meeting and have some ideas to take to the future. We definitely will miss our community to come together every week.
The final episode of the first season occurs at the same time as many European countries experience the post – corona opening. To conclude all the lessons, we have learned and to discuss the future of architectural publishing, we have invited Omar Sosa, a founder of one of the most curious magazines in print, Apartamento. Omar will join us from Mexico City.
