    El Croquis 196 (I+II): Karamuk Kuo 2009-2018 + TedAarquitectes 2010-2018 is a two-volume monograph that explores the work of two of the most exciting and innovative architectural practices working today.

    Volume I: Karamuk Kuo

    Karamuk Kuo is a Turkish-American architectural practice based in New York City. Founded in 2009 by Ali Karamuk and Can Kuo, the firm’s work is characterized by its poetic and evocative use of materials, light, and space.

    The projects featured in Volume I of El Croquis span the years 2009 to 2018 and showcase the firm’s versatility and range. From a private residence in the forest to a public library in a small town, Karamuk Kuo’s projects are all united by a common thread of sensitivity to context, human scale, and environmental awareness.

    One of the most striking aspects of Karamuk Kuo’s work is its use of materials. The firm often employs natural materials such as wood, stone, and concrete in a way that is both expressive and functional. For example, the House in the Forest is constructed of timber and glass, creating a sense of lightness and transparency that is in harmony with its natural surroundings.

    Karamuk Kuo is also known for its masterful use of light. The firm often employs skylights, strategically placed openings, and reflective surfaces to create dramatic light plays that define spaces and enhance the overall experience. For example, the Public Library in Ayvalık features a large skylight that floods the interior with natural light, creating a bright and inviting space.

    Finally, Karamuk Kuo is committed to sustainable design. The firm’s projects often incorporate passive solar design, natural ventilation, and other sustainable strategies to reduce their environmental impact. For example, the House in the Forest is designed to maximize natural light and ventilation, reducing the need for artificial energy.

    Volume II: TedAarquitectes

    TedAarquitectes is a Spanish architectural practice based in Barcelona. Founded in 2010 by David Torrents, Albert Aranda, and Marc Colomer, the firm’s work is characterized by its playful and experimental approach to architecture.

    The projects featured in Volume II of El Croquis span the years 2010 to 2018 and showcase the firm’s creativity and innovation. From a private residence that doubles as a sculpture to a public park that blurs the boundaries between architecture and nature, TedAarquitectes’ projects are all united by a common thread of imagination and curiosity.

    One of the most distinctive aspects of TedAarquitectes’ work is its use of form. The firm often employs unexpected and playful forms to create buildings that are both visually striking and functional. For example, the La Clau house is a sculptural residence that is composed of a series of interlocking cubes.

    TedAarquitectes is also known for its use of color. The firm often employs bold and vibrant colors to create buildings that are both eye-catching and playful. For example, the Park at the Old Hospital in Barcelona is a public park that is painted in a variety of colors, creating a vibrant and inviting space.

    Finally, TedAarquitectes is committed to social engagement. The firm’s projects often address social and environmental issues, such as homelessness and climate change. For example, the Casa de la Solidaridad in Barcelona is a homeless shelter that is designed to be both functional and welcoming.

    Conclusion

    El Croquis 196 (I+II) is a must-read for anyone interested in contemporary architecture. The two volumes showcase the work of two of the most exciting and innovative practices working today, and they offer a glimpse into the future of architecture.

    By exploring the work of Karamuk Kuo and TedAarquitectes, we can see how architecture is evolving to become more poetic, evocative, and socially engaged.
