"Architecture will no longer be the social, the collective, the dominant art. The great poem, the great building, the great work of mankind will no longer be built, it will be printed." - Victor Hugo
dpr-barcelona is an independent publishing house based in Barcelona. Their projects, both digital and printed, transcend the boundaries of conventional publications, approaching to those which are probably the titles of architecture in the future. dpr-barcelona is envisioned to be a growing interdisciplinary group, exploring the boundaries between printed matters and new media, transforming traditional publishing practice [as we know it] into a live exchange of knowledge. Their [net]work is a real hub linking several publications and actors on architecture and theory.
