Friendly Fire – Vazio S/A
Friendly Fire

“Space for subversion, mockery and fetish in architecture”, the iconoclastic Portuguese fanzine Friendly Fire has just sent us the no. 86 copy of its very limited run of 100! Friendly Fire is at Archizines world tour, an exhibition which celebrates and promotes the recent reemergence of independent architectural magazines all over the planet. Including volumes from the United States to Argentina, from Norway to Tanzania, these new independent publications are reshaping the editorial world, assuming comments and criticisms that are beyond the realm of architecture to cover everyday life. The itinerary of the exhibition began at the Architectural Association in London, has joined the influential galleries Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York and do You read Me?! in Berlin, now it’s in Porto (home of Friendly Fire) and then goes to Tokyo, Paris, Brussels, Dublin, etc.

Designed in AutoCAD (!!!), thanks to Friendly Fire we finally could publish our old but unseen drawing of Villa Savoye on stilts (pictured), part of the research Topographical Amnesias
