Publications are vital for the formation, display, and value enhancement of Argentine design.
–I–D–A Foundation motivates and supports the production of projects that expand knowledge, question established ideas, and incorporate new elements relevant to the field.
From document-based information to unpublished images, the collection has substantial material to encourage critical reviews and analysis related to different specialties, territorial origins, authors, and emblematic cases of design. The institution also publishes work in association with independent actors and other organizations, public and private alike. This strategy allows for a broad social and cultural reach of the original material produced in diverse formats: physical, digital, and interactive.
