Caza : 2011-2015
CAZA: 2011-15, the inaugural monograph of the Brooklyn-based design studio CAZA, celebrates the first five years of the firm, and includes photographs, drawings, building descriptions, essays, and conversations that relate to CAZA s global architecture and design practice. The book opens with a photo essay by world-renowned photographer Iwan Baan, who documented CAZA s first internationally acclaimed project, the 100 Walls Church, in Cebu City, Philippines. With offices in Brooklyn, New York; Bogota, Colombia; Lima, Peru; and Manila, Philippines, CAZA has emerged as a risk-taking, forward-thinking studio working on a mixture of residential, civic, and corporate projects that are shaping the built environment in cities around the world. The launch of CAZA: 2011 15 will coincide with the opening of La Biennale di Venezia in May 2016, with a special installation at Palazzo Mora in Venice, which will subsequently travel to various cities around the world.
