PIAM BOOK 2017. Third volume dedicated to PIAM, International Matimex Architecture Prize.

The third edition of the Matimex International Architecture Prize (PIAM) raised the theme of reflection on the "Architecture of equilibrium: mens sana in corpore sano" and the projects presented reflected the different typological approaches that the theme suggested to architects, designers and students.

The books dedicated to the PIAM contest always try to be a symbolic reflection and are aesthetically related to the theme of the edition they represent. This year, it was especially complicated to transfer to paper a concept as philosophical and abstract as the balance between body and mind, without falling into the temptation to pose it only as a physical concept.

The balance is reflected on the cover with the representation of the myth of the Minotaur's labyrinth, as a symbol of the necessary proportion between physical strength and intelligence that will allow us to overcome complex situations.

The interior of the book stands out for its discreet elegance and its careful typographic design; As a novelty, this year readers can physically build their own PIAM awards: a nod to all the exclusive owners of this new volume, with which Matimex wants to reward the collaboration of the jury and the effort of the participants; materializing your gratitude in this book PIAM 2017 that we present.
