Fairy Tale Architecture 2016

In late 2016 Places Journal published a new installment of the Fairy Tale Architecture series, curated by Andy and his siter Kate Bernheimer. The series pairs architects and stories, with each architect creating images that explore the relationship between a specific narrative and architecture. Each image created for this series is based on a tale chosen by either the designer or the curating team.

BA's entry this year was based on The Seven Ravens, a tale of a sister's search across time and space to find her lost brothers.

This years other participants included Snøhetta, Ultramoderne, and Smiljan Radic.
