‘Archives Universum’ emerged after years of visiting different architects’ studios and noticing how life intermingles with work. The publication seeks to add to the description of work-life spaces through an explanation of projects in progress at a given time in the featured studio. A two-fold narrative exists in each instalment: photographic and written. Texts by the architects provide explanation, while the images follow a narrative discourse coherent to each edition of the journal. This first edition features Flores & Prats, an architectural practice in Barcelona founded by Eva Prats and Ricardo Flores in 1998. The two combine design and constructive practice with academic activity.
