Accattone is an independent editorial project based in Brussels.
It is a dedicated space for architecture documents: an interview, a visual essay, a drawing, are laid out as fragments of a montage transversal to the issue. Contents are manipulated mostly through their visual condition. From their sheer confrontation, several themes emerge. The printed format and its slow periodicity combine the characteristics of the work-in-progress with the finiteness of the object.

ssue 3 is a single content magazine specially produced for The Corner Show. Both an autonomous object and a continuation of Accattone #2, it consists in a 96 x 64 cm poster foldable into an 8-page publication. Martinez Barat Lafore collect 137 images and quotations inherent to their conceptual and built work, through sketch-up renderings, scanned drawings, professional photographs or mobile phone shots. The corner is a transversal theme to their practice: line, form, way of living, it becomes wedge, moulding and skirting board, inalienable furniture, partitioning wall. The architects embrace the everyday with the gaze sharpened by meaningful fragments of their experience — forms to be analysed, conceptualised and re-used as architectural operators.
