Architecture Project (AP) have produced a book entitled A Printed Thing to commemorate their twenty-first anniversary.
“When an architecture practice undertakes to commit itself to print, what is the result? Here is one, an architecture practice attempting to lay itself bare – open submissions, a project defined by its content. This then is the result. A ‘book’ of comment, theories, illustrations, photography, prose. An act of definition through experiment. A printed thing.”

AP’s latest project, the new Farsons’ brewhouse will be inaugurated this evening by President George Abela.
Since its formation 80 years ago, the Simonds Farsons Cisk brewery has sought to use its architecture to communicate its aspirations and corporate character. The new brewhouse seeks to provide an environment suited to the brewing of Farsons’ renowned products. The whole building acts as a container for the brewing process, housing its plant, brewing tuns and laboratories, and is wrapped in an unassuming industrial skin, a protective shell accommodating the complex programme while simultaneously assisting the environmental control of the interiors.
