Architects VS rest of the world is a participatory editorial project conceived by Itinerant Office, within the cultural agenda of the Association New Generations.

The project investigates alternative ways to produce online content and to mix analogical and technological tools, all with the aim of anticipating future trends. We addressed 50 architects across Europe, sending them a postcard with the question: “What is the role of the architect in contemporary society?” We received a very diverse set of answers, ranging from simple sketches, drawings and short quotes to more elaborate explanations.

By means of a simple postcard, this project aims at understanding how the architect’s role is changing. Simultaneously our goal is to unveil unusual aspects and discover new actors that could have a positive influence on the design process.
