About the Author

JDS/Julien De Smedt Architects is a multidisciplinary office that focuses on architecture and design, from large scale urban planning to furniture to design. The office is fuelled by talented designers and experienced architects who jointly develop projects from the early sketch to on-site supervision. Independent of scale, this outlines an approach that is affirmatively social in its outcome, enthusiastic in its ambition and professional in its method.

Its really good book! If you know the story about Bjark Ingels and Julien, the PLOT architects, and you are thinking to buy any BIG book (yes is more) forget it!
this one is the daily work from JDS office, for a young architect is great to understand how long it takes to develop a project,issues and other stuff that happend along one year. The way they made it is by far better than yes is more.
BUY IT!

Format: Paperback
Written on the cusp of the global financial downfall, AGENDA prompts the question, what can architecture learn from crisis? What threads and strategies lie within this modality that can sustain a new means of architectural practice? At 544 pages, this book is ample; comprised of a running dialogue of interviews, images of project progress and deadlines, providing voyeuristic insight into JDS architects. The narrative of projects, a format likely borrowed from de Smedt's mentor Rem Koolhaas (Content, 2004) is harrowingly engaging. Teetering on the ambitious, AGENDA never glibly offers solutions making this stellar read, a smart new generation of monograph.
