Book design of upcoming «Loft P – Tracing the Architecture of the Loft Book» by smog studio, Per-Johan Dahl, Caroline Dahl.
In «Loft P» Per-Johan and Caroline Dahl draw from their research and practice in architecture and urbanism to extract the spatial typology of the loft. Departuring from the synchronized celebration and critique of Modernism, which spurred the emergence of loft architecture in Lower Manhattan during the 1950s and ’60s, the book deploys the design and construction of «Loft P» in Malmo, Sweden, to extrapolate the architectural significance of the loft. The loft became a real estate success in the 1970s that spread beyond New York City, yet, however, often lacking a critical approach to architectural design. By recognizing the historical and theoretical premises of the loft, this book establishes a body of knowledge useful for various fields and practices when engaging the spatial attributes of the loft in contemporary discourse.
