The most liked articles of the last month from our followers on social networks.
Our followers on social networks prove to have a wide vision of the world, opting for great architects, from whom they may learn, and, at the same time, small but elegant firms. They consider socially committed projects but do not disdain good-looking houses, they are interested in art, in its politicized version, or when it is a field for experimentation both in media and language. This way we wanted to read last month’s most popular stories and propose them to those of you who have missed them or do not spend time on social networks. Enjoy the reading.
