The second volume in a four-part series on ALICE, House 1 Catalogue focuses on a prototype, House 1, developed and constructed throughout the academic year. This mobile structure incorporates ALICE’s core values of communication and collaboration in building processes, and it will travel as part of an exhibition to several major cities, where it will be continually modified and reconfigured.

Architecture, Theory / History / Criticism
The Atelier de la Conception de l’Espace (ALICE), affiliated with the School of Architecture at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, is an educational facility focusing on preparing students for the practice of architecture. To cultivate the ability to create or shape space, students must be confronted with an educational framework that prepares them for the field’s many practical challenges, from cultural, social, environmental, and physical concerns to working with the wide range of collaborators who must bring their creativity and expertise together in the design process. With again hundreds illustrations, this book continues the experimental narrative Dieter Dietz, Matthias Michel, and Daniel Zamarbide began in The Invention of Space, which will be further developed in the forthcoming third and fourth volumes in the series.
