This limited edition catalogue published through Betts Project accompanies the 2018 exhibition Günter Günschel: Freigeregelt at the gallery, and focuses on the often under-acknowledged practice of German architect Günter Günschel (1928-2008). Together with a new catalogue essay, the publication illustrates his unique experimental computer, anaglyphic and plotter drawings from the late 1980s and 90s, and represents the most comprehensive study of this body of work to date.
Limited edition photographic works by architect and theorist Denise Scott Brown. Taken between 1956 - 1966, this series of works revisits her early photography and represents the genesis of ideas that immortalised her as one of the most influential architects of the twentieth century.
“I’m not a photographer. I shoot for architecture — if there’s art here it’s a byproduct. Yet the images stand alone. Judge what you see.” — Denise Scott Brown

Considered on of the most important Russian architects alive today, Alexander Brodsky is an architect and former member of the Paper Architects group operating in Russia in the 1980s, whose work centred around a rejection of state sponsored architectural production of low-quality, standardised buildings.
His 2016 work Sketch was made specifically for his exhibition at Betts Project in the same year. The drawing is pigment on paper and comes signed and numbered by the artist.

Fred Scott | Collage
Author of “On Altering Architecture” (2008), and arguably paving the way for the likes of David Chipperfield and Caruso St. John, the thinking of architectural theorist and academic Fred Scott illuminates relatively unexplored territory in the domain of architecture. His collages investigate notions of the nature of modernity, ruin, the function of copying and reproduction and examinations into the psychological and sociological aspects of transforming existing buildings.
Interior I Reversed (2016) explores the relationship between architecture and interior design; the former understood as timeless, while the latter as temporal. For more information about the work and Scott’s theory click here.
Each collage is made on demand by the artist and remains uniquely different each time.

Jacques Hondelatte | Book
Jacques Hondelatte (1942-2002) was a French architect who made a great impact on his generation. Little known to the general public, and mainly published through specialised journals, his works remain influential yet outside the paradigm of his peers Jean Nouvel and Rudy Riccioti, as well as his student and collaborator Lacaton-Vassal. At the Ecole d'Architecture of Bordeaux he was a professor and considered a ‘guru without dogma' according to Frédéric Druot.
Jacques Hondelatte des Grate-ciel dans la Tête was published in 2002 by Norma Editions just after his death. The 480-page spread is the most comprehensive study of his career and includes imagery and writing on all his major projects.
