Focusing on European countries
Ireland was one of the first European countries to be brought to the edge of the abyss by the property bubble. In 2008, when the bubble of increased speculative construction and rapidly rising property prices suddenly burst, the banking system collapsed. By the time the Celtic Tiger received 85 billion in European support in 2010, housing prices had fallen 35 per cent. Remarkably, the architecture policy has essentially escaped being under pressure during these turbulent years. Although retrenched, the ambition to contribute to a sustainable, safe and social environment remains. The focus has shifted more towards the soft components of architecture, such as telling stories, building communities and research.
Section deals with current trends and relationships in technology and materials. In each issue, A10 chooses one project to be the subject of a more in-depth analysis, exploring the connections between concept and result, innovation and use, corporate and social identity, and so on. Emporia, a colossal shopping centre in Malmö by Swedish office Wingårdhs, offers visitors an otherworldly entrance with hi-tech glass applications.
MI Tour Guide
Envisioning the future, redefining the past
During the coming three months, Lisbon is set to become one of the leading architectural capitals of Europe. The third edition of the Lisbon Architecture Triennale will debate and disseminate architectural thinking and practice across geographic and disciplinary boundaries under the enigmatic but daring theme Close, Closer. As such, this is an ideal moment for A10 correspondent Carlos M. Guimarães to present a tour in one of the oldest capital cities of the Old Continent. This fourth edition of MI Tour Guide is published in collaboration with MIMOA.

Out of obscurity
Buildings from the margins of modern history
The Church of the Autostrada derives its name from its position alongside the Autostrada del Sole and its dedication to the many labourers who perished while constructing this colossal road infrastructure that crosses Italy from north to south. The church, the actual name of which is the Chiesa di San Giovanni Battista, was realized between 1960 and 1964 by Giovanni Michelucci.
