A conversation with Lev Bratishenko, CCA Editor, on the kinds of approaches architects invent and appropriate to reflect on their ideas outside of traditional design practices. 

Considering case studies from the 1960s to today, The Other Architect is an exhibition and publication project that presents an annotated collection of primary documents that are evidence of the experimental venues, methods, and tools that architects have used to research and shape the urgent issues of their time.

With contributions from Florencia Alvarez, Pep Avilés, Greg Barton, Samuel Dodd, Isabelle Doucet, Ole W. Fischer, Anna Foppiano, Kim Förster, Owen Hatherley, Larissa Harris, Alison B. Hirsch, Douglas Moffat, Whitney Moon, Pierluigi Nicolin, Kayoko Ota, Panayiota Pyla, Angela Rui, Deane Simpson, Johanne Sloan, Molly Wright Steenson, Rebecca Taylor, and Mirko Zardini. Together, these experiences reveal how architects can construct a cultural agenda without the intervention of built form. 

The Other Architect is presented in Montreal from 27 October 2015 – 3 April 2016.
