In the history of Literature, the origin of the Bestiario dates back to the Middle Age and it is usually described as a volume containing descriptions and combinations of different parts of real and imaginary animals with the aim both to teach morals and entertain people. The Bestiario is indeed a 'dream book' able to display an unknown universe generated by the men's imagination in a game of real and fantastic.
Our Bestiario is an investigation, a study, a research. Bestiario brings forward this idea with a series of animal sketches by architects from all over the world, studying the possible link with the architect’s greater vision and style.

With a preface by the Chilean architect Smiljan Radic, from whom it all began, the publication is now available to order.
